DENVER (AP) — The race to be the first ski resort in Colorado to open for the season is ending in a tie.

Arapahoe Basin and Loveland will both welcome skiers and snowboarders starting at 9 a.m. Thursday.

Loveland announced its opening day on Monday but A-Basin caught up and said Wednesday that it would also begin operating.

A-Basin won the contest last year, opening on Oct. 17. This year, a warm fall delayed snowmaking but recent cold temperatures and real snow have helped the resorts catch up.

Aspen Mountain has also begun making snow on some trails, including the course that will be used for next month's Ski World Cup.
