Your guide to the 2013/14 season: Opening Dates

Comments by Kelli Lynn Hargrove/

The 2013/14 Season has arrived! Arapahoe Basin and Loveland Ski Area in Colorado have already got their lifts up and running, while Oregon’s Timberline Resort and Washington’s Crystal Mountain have also briefly opened their slopes.

The snow is falling, the cats are hard at work, and full-fledged winter is just around the corner. Here is your guide to when and where you can dust off that rust and get back on-snow!

Stay tuned, we’ll keep updating this list as more opening dates roll in!
