First Resort Turns 0708 - A-Basin

Sure as the aspens turning yellow, every fall the Colorado resorts fire up their snow guns as soon as the temperature falls, hoping to claim the title of first to open in the US. An excited phone call came from a friend in Denver early this morning, with word that Arapahoe Basin’s Exhibition Chair opened at 9am this morning. Its earliest opening in 61 years, A-Basin battled a recent stretch of warm weather to open a trail or two with an 18” base. The thin white ribbon might be packed full today, but hey, it’s turns.
