Ah October skiing and riding with chair lifts running. It warms my heart and gets many of us grabbing our skis or snowboard to get early season turns for another season of sliding in the mountains. Today Arapahoe Basin opens one day after Loveland Ski Area got the Colorado season off and running. For the die hard New England skiers and riders Sunday River in Maine kicked off the season with one run opening on Saturday.
