"We are opening tomorrow, man," reports Loveland spokesperson John Sellers. "It's on."
Here's the press release with details:
For the second season in a row, Loveland Ski Area is the first ski area to open in Colorado. Chair 1 will turn for the first time of the new season tomorrow, Sunday, October 24th at 9:00am.
"We had to wait out some warm weather which delayed Opening Day a little bit this year," said Rob Goodell, Director of Business Operations. "But the good news is we will be skiing tomorrow on some really good snow. Our snowmaking team did a great job battling the warm weather and once again we are very proud to offer the first turns of the season."
Loveland will offer lift served access to one top-to-bottom run. Skiers and riders will drop one thousand vertical feet in a little over a mile via the trails Catwalk, Mambo and Homerun.
"It took a little longer than last year, but I think everyone is going to be pleased with the conditions" said Eric Johnstone, Snowmaking and Trail Maintenance Manager. "We got 5 inches of snow last night which is a nice compliment to the snow we were able to make. It is still snowing hard now and opening day could be a powder day if this keeps up."
Loveland Ski Area will open at 9:00am on Sunday, October 24th. Loveland's will be open from 9:00am until 4:00pm Monday through Friday and 8:30am until 4:00pm on weekends and designated holidays. Early season lift tickets are $47 for adults and $22 for children ages 6-14.
