Today in stoke: Loveland Ski Area fires first shots in opening day battle

Gotta love Loveland, where, in the race to claim earliest opening day honors in North America yet again, they've already got snowmaking crews on the mountain. After getting hit with a bit of the real deal yesterday, Loveland's snowmaking crews went to work under the full moon last night, which means opening day is any day now: Last year we were on the slopes at Loveland on October 7. We'll keep you posted.

"We got a little dusting on the peaks yesterday and went for it," says John Sellers, Loveland's communications director. "It's always a nice sight to see those first patches of snow on the green slopes. The snowmaking crews are looking for that perfect combination of low temperature and low humidity and we've got it right now."
