Keystone, Breckenridge and Eldora have all announced they are opening Wednesday — two days early for the Summit County resorts and a full nine days early for Eldora.
A healthy dump of snow — three feet in 72 hours in some areas — means they’ll join Wolf Creek in southern Colorado, and Arapahoe Basin and Loveland along Interstate 70, which all opened in October.
“It’s going to be a great season—c’mon up!" Brent Tregaskis, Eldora’s president and general manager, said in a press release.
It’s turned out to be a healthy early ski season so far, with four of the six resorts set to be open by Wednesday ahead of their average opening day since 2010.
