Today, Eldora ski area is slated to open for the 2014-2015 season, bringing the total number of resorts to six, including Arapahoe Basin, Loveland, Copper Mountain, Wolf Creek and Winter Park. And Aspen Mountain is scheduled to be number seven tomorrow. To get you stoked, we've pulled together highlights from photographer Brandon Marshall's photos from opening day at A-Basin. Considering how much fun his camera subjects were having on very early snow, imagine how much better it'll be now. Check out the gallery below, followed by ColoradoSki.com's list of opening dates -- and to see the complete "Colorado Ski Season Kicks Off at A-Basin" slide show, click here.
