Feeling a little Friday flu coming on? Tomorrow's a perfectly good day for a sick day, with more than 33 inches of snow at Loveland since opening day on Sunday and Chair 6 opening tomorrow. Loveland opened Nix Nox and Spillway this morning, and will open Keno, Blackjack, Roulette, Straight Flush, Royal Flush, and Lower Richards Run tomorrow, bringing the total to 16 runs. Not bad for October! A-Basin's also open, with a 19-inch base and more than 17 inches in the last couple days alone, and its brand new Black Mountain Express lift running strong.

Don't miss Soren McCarty's opening day photos from Loveland and A-Basin. Full schedule of opening days at other Colorado ski areas after the jump.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
