(Georgetown, CO - November 1, 2002) After being the first ski area in North America to open for the 2002-2003 ski and snowboard season, LovelandSki Area experiences one of the snowiest openings in the area's 66 year history. As of 1:00 p.m. on Friday, November 1st, the ski area, 53 mileswest of Denver, has seen 34 inches of natural snow.
New snow combined with continued snowmaking efforts are making it possible for Loveland to open more terrain and chair lifts earlier then anticipated. Tomorrow's scheduled opening of Chair Lift #6, serving the intermediate runs Black Jack and Keno, brings Loveland's offerings to nine trails and two chair lifts. Daily lifttickets are priced at early season rates; children (ages 6-14) $13, and adults (ages 15-69) $29.
