Following Arapahoe Basin's opening on Sunday, up to 17" (42cm) of natural snowfall in Colorado and consistent cold temperatures for snowmaking, a second of the state's ski areas, Keystone has announced it will also be opening imminently – from 9am tomorrow, Wednesday November 1st.

The Vail-run resort will open with 2+ miles of terrain on the Schoolmarm and Silver Spoon trails,
"A huge thank you to our incredible snowmakers, operations teams, and Mother Nature for more than a foot of new snow and the return to cold temps that have all helped to get us ready to kick things off this week," a resort statement reads, promising also opening day "…DJs, dancing, and donuts as the cherry on top!"

A third Colorado area expected to open soon, Lovelend, says it cannot yet name the day but expects to be opening imminently.

North of the border Canada's Mt Norquay has moved its opening day forward 24 hours to this Friday 3rd November, thanks to good conditions there too. It is expected to be the first in the country to open. Larger centres Lake Louise, Sunshine and Marmot Basin near Jasper all plan to open for their 23-24 seasons next week.
