Time to Ski

It’s hard to believe that the ski season is here, already. Arapahoe Basin is opening today – beating Loveland, finally, in being the ski resort in North America to open first, for the 06-07 season. Reports are that A-Basin has an 18-inch base and is open for intermediate skiing.

Although, there has not been any new ‘real’ snow, in the last few days, it’s still snow people! With 2 trails open and 1 lift operating, I imagine it could be fairly busy. So, if you’ve nothing better to do today and feel like hauling out your ski gear, it could be a fun day up on the slope(s). It’s a shame I have to work today; otherwise I’d head up and do a few runs.

Ticket prices for today, Friday the 13th, are $43 for adults. Get ’em while they’re cheap.

    In other news, Denver’s workforce has suddenly been inflicted with a massive epidemic of “sick”. ;)

    I thought I would be breaking the news to my wife, but today at lunch before I could.

    “Ski season started today. They opened!”

    So much for that.
