Loveland Ski Area will open Thursday
November 7, 2016
Loveland Ski Area will open for the season on Thursday.
The Clear Creek County ski area announced the news on Monday following weeks of unseasonably warm and dry weather that had made snowmaking at resorts across the state difficult to impossible.
Keystone Resort announced last week that it was pushing back its planned opening day from Nov. 4 to a tentative Nov. 11 because of the heat.
Loveland began making snow on Oct. 3 but the hot weather made it tough for the ski area's snowmakers to get their first run open.
