Meteorological fall began today, so as the days continue to get shorter and cooler we can start dreaming of winter. Let the countdown begin!
Loveland Ski Area in Colorado, often one of the first resorts in North America to open, has started a countdown on their website until they start to make snow. Loveland’s snowmaking team typically starts making snow the last week of September in preparation for a mid-October to early-November opening. Expert local crews and professional snowmakers work around the clock to ensure Loveland is one of the first resorts to open for the season with a full top-to-bottom run covered from tree-to-tree with an 18″ base.

Thanks to Loveland’s elevation and the expertise of their snowmaking crew, Loveland has a reputation for having the best early season conditions in Colorado. Loveland makes snow on 240 acres of terrain and snowmaking is usually completed in the first week of December.
4 weeks until September 30th. Winter’s coming, people, it’s happening! 😉
