Loveland Ski Area starts making snow

GEORGETOWN - Another Colorado ski area has fired up the snowmaking machines.

Loveland Ski Area took advantage of cold temperatures and began making snow early Thursday.

Copper Mountain started making snow Tuesday, a month before its expected opening date.

It typically takes about two weeks for Loveland's snowmaking team to cover the opening day run with an 18-inch base and tree-to-tree coverage for the first skiers and riders of the season. Loveland started making snow on Oct. 6 last season and opened on Oct. 14. Snowmaking updates are available atskiloveland.com/snowmaking. The site will be updated daily with pictures and videos of the progress.
