DENVER (AP) - Colorado ski season is underway with not one but two resorts to choose from.

Both Arapahoe Basin and Loveland ski areas began operating their lifts Thursday after snow making and recent natural snow helped the resorts catch up after a warm October.

The resorts, high on the Continental Divide, compete each year to be the first to open in the state.

Loveland was the first to announce that it would open and, on Thursday, A-Basin thanked its competition for “setting the stoke meter high early.”

It’s the first time they’ve tied since 2008.

Copper Mountain had been set to open next week but has delayed opening day to Nov. 13.
