It was a good day to be a Colorado skier as both [R113R, Copper Mountain] and [R197R, Keystone Resort] opened for the season.

Copper Mountain opened with three lifts and four trails opening up 49.7 acres of terrain coated with an 18 inch base.

Keystone Resort opened with top-to-bottom skiing and riding, two learning areas and one of the largest early-season terrain parks around. Guests were treated to free hot chocolate, coffee, donuts and free photos with the earlier-than-expected debut of EpicMix Photo, the award-winning ski and snowboard platform, website and app that combines photos with ski day/season stats and digital pins.
