When does A-Basin usually open?

So I decided to snowboard again. Bought my own board and such (Last time I used a season rental) and now I'm all jonesed out for snow. I hear A-Basin is usually the first (close) to open. When will that be, generally speaking. I know, I know, watch the weather reports... but someone has to have the historical patterns.

One, maybe two runs will open around the 3rd or 4th week of October. Any sooner means mother nature is helping out, any later means mother nature is not cooperating.

Loveland will open around the same time as well.

The number on place to get injured is opening day with 10,000 people swarming like black flies down one icy ass patch of man made snow.

Like others have said sometime in mid to late October A-basin or Loveland will open a run. Personally I recommend waiting until they have two or more runs open. Unless you like getting hit by other riders and having your season end on the first day, which is pretty rad.

Thanks for the tips. I guess I'll wait till more runs are open than that. I suck at riding to begin with.
