Keystone to open early

This just in...

A fall snowstorm delivered an early Halloween treat for skiers and snowboarders today at Breckenridge and Keystone with up to 2 feet of snow overnight, prompting Keystone Resort to announce an earlier opening to its 2006-2007 season.

Keystone was initially scheduled to open Nov. 10, but will open Nov. 3, instead.

Today, Breckenridge reported 2 feet of snow mid-mountain with Keystone receiving 16 inches at the midway point of Dercum Mountain. Vail and Beaver Creek reported more than 7 inches.

Think you can get there even earlier? Not unless you're already there. There are several closures on Interstate 70 and Loveland Pass was also closed.

Breckenridge is scheduled to open Nov. 10, Vail on Nov. 17 and Beaver Creek on Nov. 22.

Check further down the blog or Colorado Ski Country for other opening dates.
