Some might say that Friday the 13th is an unlucky day, but for skiers and snowboarders in Colorado, this October's is actually going to be a good one. That's because it was just announced that Arapahoe Basin will officially be opening for the season at the end of the week, courtesy of good ol' Mother Nature.
After some snowfall in the mountains and some hard work in the snow-making department, Arapahoe Basin announced that they will be opening their lifts for the 2011-2012 ski season tomorrow (Thurs Oct. 13th) at 9am!
Wolf Creek won the race in the first to open this year last weekend, but that's a 6-hour drive from Fort Collins. A-basin is one of the 5 closest resorts to Fort Collins.
