This makes A-Basin the first skiing and snowboarding resort to open this year. The attraction’s Black Mountain Express lift will open at 9 a.m. and provide access to the intermediate High Noon Run, according to information on arapahoebasin.com.
Rough, early-season conditions exist, so there will be no beginner skiing or snowboarding in the park, the website states.
The park is often among the first winter-sport venues to open each season, along with Loveland Ski Area. Loveland is currently in the snowmaking process, but has not yet opened for the season.
Last year, A-Basin was open from Oct. 13 to June 22.
