Arapahoe Basin, CO Oct. 22, 2003–Arapahoe Basin pushed back their opening date due to recent warm weather.
“We guarantee that we will open before, on or after October 31,” said A-Basin COO Jim Gentling.
Since ski area management can not predict or control the weather, the Oct. 24, opening date was plucked from thin air.
As soon as temperatures drop below freezing again, snowmaking will continue.About three nights of cold, dry weather should put the ski area back ontrack. Check out www.arapahoebasin.com for more details.
