With at least three resorts open for skiing and riding this weekend, Colorado is poised for a foot of snow from multiple weather systems.
A pair of Colorado mountains are open for the season – and another two will likely open by the end of the month – as the 2019-2020 ski and snowboard season begins in earnest.
A parade of fronts will move across the northwestern U.S. and Canada through the end of the week bringing snow to many peaks across the West. Meanwhile, a soggy Nor’easter primes the Northeast for colder weather ahead.
In Colorado, snowfall typically comes first to the highest slopes, prompting a congenial yet competitive contest among ski and snowboard resorts in the #racetoopen for a new season before all the rest.
The #racetoopen is officially underway between Colorado's Loveland Ski Area and Arapahoe Basin. Meanwhile, Vermont's Killington Resort has also thrown a hat into the ring as well.
Another season of SnoCast is back right here on SnoCountry.com. We’re glad to bring you a powder-tastic year of forecasts so you can find the best skiing and riding this 2019-2020 winter season.
It’s the ski season that never ends.
With a late-June snowstorm in the mountains predicted, Summit County resort Arapahoe Basin said Thursday it would be open through the end of June.
Some skiers and snowboarders are choosing to make fewer trips to the mountains due to congestion on Interstate 70, according to a new study from the I-70 Coalition.

After harvesting the spring corn snow that’s still abundant this spring at many resorts around the country, you could just sit back and enjoy a frosty one on the deck. Or, you could kick up your outdoor game a notch with an afternoon bike ride that will make that end-of-day refreshment all the more rewarding.
East and West have reaped abundant snowfall so this spring is a great time to enjoy the best of snow and ski culture.
There's nothing quite like a tailgate party in the mountains. Sunburned faces, thin-clad celebrants and endless supplies of grilled meats and beer set the scene for the closing weeks of the ski and snowboard season.
Sometimes rapid growth isn't all it's cracked up to be. Arapahoe Basin has found that to be true and, because of it, announced it will no longer be part of Vail Resort's season pass portfolio next season.
Since 1946, Colorado’s Arapahoe Basin - or as the locals call it A-Basin - has offered skiers and snowboarders some of the most challenging terrain found at any ski area in North America. But over the years, numerous expansions off the backside of the 13,050-foot summit have opened up additional terrain opportunities for intermediate skiers and riders.
Many ski and snowboard resorts in the West rely upon a nearby town that is base for food, lodging and off-slope fun, so SnoCountry took a look at three well-known towns that act as hubs for the mountains that surround them.
The 2018/19 ski and snowboard season has officially arrived in Colorado with a number of ski resorts opening, taking advantage of the recent storms which dumped snow by the feet, not inches, on their slopes.
