Last night at 10 p.m. Arapahoe Basin fired up it's snow guns. This pic is from early this morning. All guns are running from the top of the Exhibition chairlift at midway to the base area. Theey will continue to run as long as conditions are optimal. A-Basin was the first ski area to open in the nation last season on October 13, 2007. Ski area officials plan to open the ski area sometime between mid to late October this season.
