Snowmaking has begun at Loveland and Arapahoe Basin, meaning the 2013-2014 ski season is just around the corner. The race has begun to see which of Colorado’s early openers get there first. Time to dust off those skis!

A-Basin spokesperson Adrienne Saia Isaac says the ski area started making snow Friday night. A report from Colorado Ski Country USA says Loveland started its snowmakers the same evening. No date is set yet for opening day.
