Loveland will open for the 2017-18 season on Friday, October 20

Loveland Ski Area will open for the 2017-18 season on Friday, October 20. Lift 1 will run from 9:00 am until 4:00 pm on Friday and will offer skiers and riders access to one top-to-bottom run covered from tree-to-tree with an 18-inch base. The trails Catwalk, Mambo, and Home Run make up this Opening Day run which is over a mile in length and nearly 1,000 vertical feet.

"We have been waiting all summer for this and are excited to announce that Opening Day is finally here," said COO Rob Goodell. "The snow we received in early October has been a tremendous help and our snowmakers have put in a lot of hard work to ensure the first turns of the season are good ones. We invite everyone to come celebrate the start of another season with us on Friday."
