VIDEO: Z Griff keeps the opening day train rolling with a stop at Copper Mountain on Veteran’s Day. Mother Nature greeted hundreds of skiers and riders with about 8 inches of fresh snow, with more falling throughout the day. The best part? Hardly any wind.

Snow report: Copper reporter 7 inches overnight and it’s still falling in big, fat flakes.

Summit Daily field report: You can’t ask for anything better than powder on opening day. There are tons of people out there, so be ready for early-season moguls and a few slid-off areas.

Weather: It’s snowing lightly this afternoon, but the sun is starting to peek through the clouds. It’s also pretty chilly — don’t forget the neckwarmer and thick gloves.
