Several inches of new snow blanket Beaver Creek, Vail

Loveland, A-Basin may start snowmaking this week

Loveland Ski Area high atop the Continental Divide along Interstate 70 could crank up its snowmaking system later this week after a substantial coating of new snow fell on its slopes on Sunday. Other local ski areas also enjoyed the first significant snowfall of the season.

“There is a chance -- probably a good one -- that we will start this week,” Loveland marketing director John Sellers said in an email to RealVail.com on Monday. “No definitive timetable yet, but we should know more soon.”

Sellers says four inches fell at the base of the resort, with more up high. Locally, Beaver Creek also reported a few inches of new snow.

“Today [Monday] the first snowfall of the season blanketed the slopes of Beaver Creek, and the wintery white made for a perfect backdrop against the fall foliage,” Beaver Creek spokeswoman Jen Brown said in an email blast.

Arapahoe Basin, just over Loveland Pass from Loveland Ski Area, is also getting its snowmaking system ready to rock.

“No word on the exact start of snowmaking yet,” A-Basin marketing and communications manager Adrienne Saia Isaac said in an email Monday. “We’ve got the guns on High Noon ready to go, but we’re keeping an eye on the temperatures to see what happens over the next couple days. I have a feeling [snowmaking] won't be too far away …”

Arapahoe Basin unofficially received about three inches of new snow Sunday.

Last year, Arapahoe Basin won the race to be the first Colorado ski area to open for the season, cranking up the lifts on Oct. 17. Loveland followed suit nearly a week later on Oct. 23.

Opening day at Vail is scheduled for Friday, Nov. 22, and opening day at Beaver Creek is set for Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Colorado’s weather will steadily improve through the middle of the week, but then another storm should move into state late Thursday, according to Opensnow.com.

“Expect wind but little precipitation on Thursday, with the main push of precipitation and colder air arriving Thursday night and lasting through Friday evening,” write Opensnow meteorologist Joel Gratz.

“The best chance of snow will be from Aspen north to I-70 and the Wyoming border, with snow levels dropping to 9,000 feet on Friday.”

Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time. PVC ramen Antwerpen
