DENVER (CBS4) – Ski season is already underway in Colorado with three resorts officially open. Keystone is the last one with elevators running from Friday morning.
The Wolf Creek Ski Area opened for weekend skiing on October 16, followed by Pool A the next day. A powerful mid-October storm helped the process, as well as more than a foot of snow falling at some resorts along the Continental Divide. More snow is expected to fall this weekend.
