Colorado ski resort tests its snow guns

The resort is 17 days away from making snow.

CLEAR CREEK COUNTY, Colo. — It might still be summer, but ski season is just around the corner.

Loveland Ski Area is already thinking about snowmaking, having brought out its snow guns Tuesday.

The Loveland Trail Maintenance crew tested its snow guns across the mountainside in preparation of the 2022-23 ski season. The resort plans to start snowmaking at the start of October.

Loveland Ski Area said it hopes to open mid-late October. Last year, Loveland opened on Oct. 30.
