Early this morning the first skiers hopped the lift at Arapahoe Basin and just like that, the ski season was on.

Friday the 13th proved to be lucky for die-hard ski fans who made the treck to Arapahoe Basin. Just as soon as the sun began to shine on the slopes, the lifts were roll'n to the top and shortly thereafter skiers began their first trips down to officially kick off the 2017-18 ski season.

Here are the projected opening dates for Colorado ski resorts.
