A late October snowstorm in Colorado is making headlines across the country, as snowfall reaches epic proportions at Keystone Resort. Heavy snow continues to fall as eager ski fans await the resort’s 2011-12 season opening, coming up on Friday, Nov. 4th. Breckenridge, Vail, and Beaver Creek resorts are also seeing over a foot of snowfall as they look forward to their November openings.

This snowstorm ensures that skiers and snowboarders can look forward to top to bottom skiing on opening day at Keystone, as well as 25 new features for all abilities in the early season terrain park. In addition, Keystone’s opening day will be crowned as “Dercum Day,” in honor of co-founder Max Dercum who passed away this fall. As one of the original founders of Keystone Resort, Dercum Day will feature free doughnuts, hot chocolate, coffee, giveaways, and much more!
