A Basin's east wall opens!
Arapahoe Basin's steep, above timberline East Wall opened today.
For the last few weeks, patrollers at the ski area have been setting off explosives to reduce avalanche potential.
On top of that, the Basin got 5 new inches last night.
Should make for epic skiing today and tomorrow.
P.S. If you're driving I-70 to the ski areas this weekend, remember that the Broncos game at 1 p.m. Sunday will affect traffic. Figure the rush home will start a little earlier than usual.
