Big Time, indeed, I'll send over my contacts. Still planning on the trip and checked A-Basin's webcam to see this:

Arapahoe Basin Ski Area | Web Cams

Last time I checked there was nothing so not sure if this is really new or they're just recycling old pix, which I doubt.

So things are looking up!

It's nice to see the snow. The temps are cooling off. This snow will all be melted (good thing). Hopefully, the storms don't start for real until November. That would be rather ideal.

CO Snow

From the ice coast, it is all so cool to see. Breck posted a first snow video on their site as well.

It's only my second year here, when does A-basin normally open up?

I have the opening dates for the others written down on a notebook. This is my first year buying a pass and I can't wait to use the shit out of it.

Last year I hit Keystone and Breck 3-4 times each and Vail 1-2 times. This year, I want to spread the love

Is there anywhere to get a mid day report on how crowded each resort is? In case I want to shuffle to a different spot

Heres your Midday report

Keystone and Breck: crowded

Abasin and Loveland: not crowded

Copper and WP: in between if you know where to go even on crowded days tons of these mountains are empty, sorta true for anywhere but...

Last year Loveland and Abasin opened mid-Oct, but it was early and shitty for the rest of the year. This year it really isn't cooling off yet in the forecast, so maybe late Oct, by early Nov should be rolling.

A Basin opened mid October last year. It all depends on how much snow they get. You can check webcams for each resort to tell how crowded it is.
