Cooler temperatures and snowfall made it possible for the Summit County ski areas to get an earlier start on the season.

Opening day is a party at A-Basin, featuring neon and outfits. Skiing typically takes a back seat to the celebration of welcoming back winter!!!

We are all excited to get the skis and boards on the slope!!
