A-Basin, Loveland start snowmaking operations

By Real Vail
Real AspenSeptember 29, 2013
Both Loveland and Arapahoe Basin ski areas turned on their snow guns over the weekend as a cold front passed through the state on Friday and lowered overnight temperatures.

The manmade snow supplements natural snow that fell in two separate storms over the past week, moving both resorts closer to opening day.

“The surrounding peaks have been white all week and it is great to see our snowmaking team push the snow line a little further down the mountain,” said Loveland marketing director John Sellers said. “Every flake that falls from the sky or from one of our snow guns gets us that much closer to opening day. We look forward to turning the lifts for all the skiers and snowboarders that have patiently made it through another long summer.”
Snowmaking at A-Basin on Saturday.

During an unusually dry fall last year, Loveland opened for the season on Oct. 23, with A-Basin opening first on Oct. 17. The two ski areas high atop the Continental Divide typically duel to be the first to open in the state, sometimes opening as early as the first week of October.

“Our mountain ops crew fired up the snow guns late last night [Friday], and [Saturday] morning we have new snow blanketing the intermediate High Noon run at Arapahoe Basin,” A-Basin marketing and communications manager Adrienne Saia Isaac said in an email blast on Saturday. “Break out your puffy and get that gear tuned. The 2013-14 ski and ride season will be here before we know it.”

Loveland’s snowmaking crew also started up the guns Friday night and will work their way down Catwalk, Mambo and Homerun for opening day. Sections of the three trails form a top-to-bottom run that’s more than a mile long and drops nearly 1,000 vertical feet.

It usually takes two to three weeks for Loveland's snowmaking crew to cover the top-to-bottom run with an 18-inch base and tree-to-tree coverage. Loveland started making snow on Oct. 4 last season. Go to the websites for both Loveland and A-Basin for the latest snowmaking updates.

Forecasters are calling for sunny and dry weather through Thursday, with another storm rolling in Thursday and possibly dropping up to six inches at altitudes down to 7,000 feet by Friday.

Vail opens for the season Friday, Nov. 22, and Beaver Creek opens Wednesday, Nov. 27.

Loveland Valley is a separate base area with gentle slopes perfect for newcomers. If you are comfortable with your skiing and riding abilities, you will want to head to Loveland Basin. Here you will find the majority of Loveland's terrain suitable for all abilities.

WOW! Time to get my goggles on! This’s so exciting. My father and I go skiboarding every once a year during the holidays. Like, it’s only going to provide more slope because of the storm. Plus, now that I’m done with my university compositions, thanks to professional dissertation writing services by top scholars, producing unique content for my presentations. I think I may buy a TOBOGGAN to finally try it out!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like เมล็ดกาแฟ. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
