Two resorts ready to begin making snow

DENVER ” The battle to be the first Colorado ski resort to open is about to begin.

Both Arapahoe Basin and Loveland say they have their snowguns out.

“We are really excited. We are ready to get it going,” Leigh Hierholzer of A-Basin said today. “We need it to be about three degrees colder than last night. The reservoir is full. We are just waiting for the right temperatures even if it is only for a couple of hours.”

She said the resort expects to open in mid- or late-October.

Kathryn Johnson of Loveland said they also have their guns out.
