If you live in Colorado, it’s time to get your ski and snowboard gear together. Arapahoe Basin recently announced that it will open for business this Monday (10/25/10). Patrons can expect an 18-inch base on the intermediate High Noon run; there is no beginner skiing available yet.

A ribbon cutting celebration for the new lift, the Black Mountain Express, will take place just before 9:00 a.m. The new high speed quad chairlift will begin official operation shortly thereafter.
