Colorado's ski season is getting off to an early start with the opening of Arapahoe Basin Ski Area Friday morning.

The Black Mountain Express lift started running at 9:00 a.m. giving skiers and snowboarders access to the intermediate High Noon trail.

"Mother Nature has been kind to the Basin," said Alan Henceroth, Arapahoe Basin Chief Operating Officer. "It's exciting to kick off the ski season earlier than usual, and welcome winter back to Colorado."

Last year, A-Basin opened on Oct. 21. Opening day is an annual party at A-Basin, featuring neon outfits and Halloween costumes. The Black Mountain Express lift is expected to run through June.
