A-Basin Turns On the Guns

A-Basin Turns On the Guns

The snowmaking race is on

The race is on, folks. Colorado's Arapahoe Basin, one of the hardcore havens of the high country, turns on its snowguns tonight -- though they've already been blessed with a starter layer this week courtesy of Mother Nature. A-Basin is pushing to become the first Colorado resort to open this season, continuing a seasons-long battle between itself and Loveland Ski Area, just over the Continental Divide. If you're a Twitter-head like us, check the #Racetoopen hashtag for race updates.

 

Update, 9/24:  The snowguns started at 7pm last night and they're still blowing.  See photos.
