Loveland ski resort in Colorado, usually one of the first ski resorts open in the USA, started snowmaking for the first time this season last night.

Loveland generally needs about 4-14 days to put down enough snow to open a ski run, so we’ve still got a decent chunk of time to wait and the temperature forecast looks ok at best.  Right now, the NOAA forecast for Loveland Pass is for temperatures in around 35ºF every night for the next week.  This is not quite cold enough to make snow, but hopefully Loveland gets a bit of real snow on Tuesday…

NOAA's forecast for 12,000-foot Loveland Pass, CO this week shows no temperatures below freezing.

Fingers crossed!
