The race is on to open ski resorts as the Rockies have recently seen an uptick in snow.
Two ski resorts in Colorado have already opened, and others are hoping to bump their dates to open sooner than their originally scheduled dates.
Wolf Creek Ski Area in Pagosa Springs, Colorado, received 14 inches of snow this week, allowing the resort to open Saturday.
"This time of year, people are very excited to get their skis and boards out," Rosanna Pitcher, Wolf Creek Ski Area vice president of marketing and sales, said. "The exciting part of autumn is to have a snowstorm."
Wolf Creek is the first ski resort in North America to open for the season.
Further north in Colorado, Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort started filling their chair lifts this morning, allowing people to ski and board down their slopes.
Arapahoe Basin is a popular ski resort for Denver locals as it is only about an hour away from the city.
Other ski resorts in Colorado have already started making snow in addition to the snow that has already fallen.
Eldora Mountain says they turned on their snow guns this week with hopes that they open sooner than their November 19th date.
As long as Mother Nature keeps making snow, Colorado ski resorts will stay on track for their initially scheduled opening dates.
