Connor Anderson dressed in a banana costume and Sam Schuler in a gorilla costume, both from Westminster, Colo., walk to the lift line for opening day at Loveland Ski Area, Thursday, Oct. 29, 2015, in Georgetown, Colo.

“We started making snow, boy, just over a week ago Oct. 21 and with the cold temperatures and the natural snowfall we’ve been able to get a great base layer down on our run,” he said. 

Hierholzer acknowledges they won’t be beating out their rival, Loveland Ski Area, on the other side of the Continental Divide, since both are opening today, unlike 2014, when A-Basin opened first.

“We usually open between mid and late October. So we are pretty much on track,” he said.
