You know the skiing and snowboarding season is just around the corner when Loveland Ski Resort, perennially one of the first resorts in the U.S. to open, fires up its snow-making machines.
That began early Thursday morning, thanks to bitter-cold temperatures on the upper slopes.
In the description beneath the video uploaded Thursday afternoon is this statement:
"It typically takes about two weeks for Loveland's snow-making team to cover the opening day run with an 18-inch base and tree-to-tree coverage for the first skiers and riders of the season. Loveland started making snow on October 6th last season and opened on October 14th."
More cold weather, and perhaps a few snow showers, are in the forecast over the next couple of days.
