First Day on Snow!

There’s a nip in the air, the leaves have changed, and there’s a dusting of snow above 10,000 feet.  All of which means one thing: it’s time to start skiing!  Just a 50 minute trip from Vail lie Loveland and Arapahoe Basin ski areas, both of which are already open for the season.  I decided to brave the so-called white ribbon of death at Loveland and start making some turns this past Saturday (making me the first Antlers employee this year to do so).  There wasn’t a cloud in the sky, it was a beautiful 50 degrees, there were two top-to-bottom runs open and I skied onto the lift most of the day. Sure, the snow wasn’t so great, but who cares?  We were skiing in October and starting our daycount for the season.   R  Gray
