Despite limited natural snow, Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain on track to open tomorrow
Mother Nature hasn’t exactly embraced an early winter in Colorado’s high country, but that doesn’t appear to be stopping Breckenridge, Keystone and Copper Mountain ski resorts from their scheduled Nov. 10 openings.
So while terrain will be limited at all three, you will be able to make some turns starting Friday.
Breckenridge Ski Resort says its Colorado Chair will serve the Springmeier trail.

Over at Keystone, open terrain will include Schoolmarm to Silver Spoon via the River Run Gondola and Montezuma Express six-person chairlift. The resort also will open a 10-feature terrain park.
At Copper Mountain, the American Eagle and Excelerator lifts will be spinning beginning at 9 a.m. They’re expected to serve the Ptarmigan, Rhapsody and Main Vein trails. The Eagle Jib Park will be open with 12 features.
Oh, and if you haven’t purchased an Epic Pass from Vail Resorts for this season, the deadline is Nov. 19. The price is $899 for an unrestricted adult pass with unlimited skiing and riding at Vail and Beaver Creek, or $679 for Epic Local Pass with 10 days of restricted skiing and riding at Vail and Beaver Creek and unlimited access to Keystone, Breckenridge and Arapahoe Basin.
The good news is there’s sustained snowfall predicted for areas of the mountain west. The bad news is that Colorado isn’t part of that forecast.
