Mother Nature covered Loveland Ski Area with the first snow of the season this past Friday. Not to be outdone, the Loveland Ski Area snowmaking crew took advantage of the cold temperatures the following night and complimented the natural snowfall with a few man made flakes of their own.
"We have been eager to get things started," said Eric Johnstone, Snowmaking & Trail Maintenance Manager. "When the humidity dropped last night, we were able to fire up the guns and put some snow on the ground."
Loveland Ski Area's snowmaking crews started making snow around 4:00am this Saturday. They are making snow on the trails Catwalk, Mambo and Homerun for Opening Day 2010.
