Wednesday will, no doubt, be a beautiful day. Why? Because this day marks the beginning of the Colorado ski season, with the opening of Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort.

So, CSU students, forget about classes, forget about midterms and wax up your skis and snowboards.

Don’t fret if you have yet to buy a pass — there is plenty of time to get one before tomorrow morning. Passes are $309 for those 20 and older and $209 for you lucky freshmen.

Don’t want a season pass? Day passes for A-Basin on Wednesday will be $44-49 for students.

So bring out your winter jacket and take your ski goggles off your rear view mirror —- you kids are so cool — because A-Basin will offer skiers and boarders an 18-inch base on various intermediate runs as well as some features in the terrain park. But if you’re a beginner, maybe opening day won’t be so lucky for you; no beginner runs will be open.

With the potential lack of I-70 traffic on a Wednesday and the steadily declining gas prices, it will be an ideal day to get out of the city, soak up the sun and usher in the winter season.

A-Basin’s ski season only lasts until June, Rammies, so get an early start. It’ll be over before you know it.
