It's still officially fall, but that doesn't mean we can't start doing winter things! Ski season has already started at a few mountains around Colorado, but two of the big ones are about to open now as well!

Both Breckenridge Ski Resort and Vail Mountain will at least partially open tomorrow (Nov. 12th).

According to The Denver Channel:

Breckenridge, which is celebrating its 60th season, will open to skiing and riding at the base of Peak 8 on about 50 acres. Visitors can take the free BreckConnect Gondola for access up to Peak 8 starting at 8 a.m., and the resort will open about a half hour later for skiing and riding off the Colorado SuperChair and 5-Chair. Guests will also have access to the Springmeier and 4 O’Clock trails.
Vail Mountain will open Friday with more than 70 acres and 35 inches of natural snow so far this season, plus more from snowmaking machines, available from Gondola One.
