KUSA - The race is on for second place.
The ski season in Colorado kicked off with the opening of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area on Sunday.
A-Basin opened one run immediate run - thanks to early season snow, low temperatures and snow-making.
This is four days earlier than opening day last year.
The Black Mountain Express lift started running at 8:30 Sunday morning, shuttling guests to the top of the intermediate High Noon trail at mid-mountain.
Loveland plans to open this week.
