Slideshow: Cold temps allow ski resorts to fire up ‘snow guns’
CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — Loveland, Keystone and Copper Mountain are among the ski resorts taking advantage of the suddenly cold mountain temperatures to fire up their snowmaking guns.
Loveland Ski Area started making snow just after 2 a.m. Thursday. It will take Loveland’s snowmaking team two weeks to cover the opening day run with an 18-inch base and tree-to-tree coverage for the first skiers and riders of the season.
Loveland started making snow on October 6 last year and opened on October 14.Submit Your Photo
