Keystone Resort in Colorado announced it will open earlier than planned, today November 5th, thanks to fresh snow on the mountain and a spate of cold temperatures that provided ideal conditions for Keystone's talented snowmaking team.
The resort plans to open tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 5 with top-to-bottom skiing and ideal snow surface conditions. Keystone will also open with two jumps and more than 20 features from its A51 Terrain Park, the No. 2 ranked park in North America by Transworld Snowboarding Magazine.
Copper Mountain is among others opening early joining Arapahoe basin and Loveland which have been open since November.
In the southern hemisphere only Mt Ruapehu's Turoa ski area in New Zealand is still open, with a 225cm (7.5 foot) base.
