Arapahoe Basin wanted to be the first ski area to open, and it looks like it got its wish. The resort will open Exhibition Lift to High Noon run and the High Divide terrain park at 9 a.m. Friday. A-Basin beat the state's other perennially early opener, Loveland. It's tentatively set to open Saturday (unless it gets really warm tomorrow). Tickets for A-Basin are $43; Loveland will be $40.
