The race for resorts to open for this coming winter season is on! As cooler temperatures start to swirl in mountain air, mountains are preparing for the start of the snow season.

Loveland Ski Area located in Colorado just 53 miles west of Denver, recently posted this video testing their snow guns.

From the post: The Loveland Ski Area Trail Maintenance Crew was busy testing the snowguns and putting them in place for the 2017-2018 season. Get ready, we are only 22 days out from making snow! #racetoopen
