Ski season is officially under way in Colorado.

The Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski resorts opened Wednesday with one run each. Both say they have an 18-inch base of manufactured snow. Arapahoe Basin announced Monday that it would open with one lift running at 9 a.m. Wednesday, prompting Loveland to announce it would also open that day but a half hour earlier. Both later agreed to start at 8:30 a.m. to share the title of being the first in the nation to open.
Arapahoe Basin was the first to open the last two seasons.

For two snowboarders in Summit County, the race was on Wednesday morning to see who could be the first on the lift and the first down the slope.
