Congratulations to two ski resorts in Colorado for opening this Columbus Day weekend. Midday Friday, Keystone Resort in Colorado announced it would start its lift operations Saturday morning, October 12. The mountain's representatives said it is going to be the earliest opening date in 20+ years. https://twitter.com/KeystoneMtn/status/1182712895357874176 Shortly thereafter, nearby Arapahoe Basin announced they were opening today (Friday). https://twitter.com/Arapahoe_Basin/status/1182743811090313216 Arapahoe Basin opened for the 2019-2020 ski season around 3:30 p.m. local time Friday.

Back to nearby Keystone Resort, here's what it looked like Friday night: https://twitter.com/KeystoneMtn/status/1182840489084538882 Clear, calm and chilly weather will greet skiers and riders on Saturday morning. Temperatures will be in the teens for the opening of the lifts! Sunshine will warm the mountains up to the 40's by the afternoon which will feel excellent. The outlook for Colorado is dry through the holiday weekend with cool nights and warm afternoons. The next snow event could come in as early as Thursday-Friday of this week.
