The Easter Bunny is Real and Colorado Ski Country Has Proof

by Colorado Snow Sensei on Apr.23, 2014, under Colorado Skiing

Ski Country Easter Fun Fact #1: The Easter Bunny’s native habitat is on Colorado’s Continental Divide, not far from the Loveland Pass on US Highway 6. This weekend,  the Easter Bunny ventured a few miles down the mountain in each direction to visit nearby ski areas Arapahoe Basin and Loveland. Here are some picturesque shots of the Bunny doing his thing at A-Basin:

Well this is the coolest thing ever.

A drone helicopter at Loveland Ski Area filmed footage of national teams training in preparation for the Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Check out the amazing footage from just a few feet above the race course.

The agility, grace, and raw athleticism of elite ski racers is even more evident when you can follow them all the way down the mountain in a single shot. Cloudgate Aerial Cinematography from Greeley, Colorado provided this cutting edge footage.

Just when skiers and snowboarders throughout Colorado began firing their home furnaces for the first time since April, some folks in Ski Country had a better idea: At 6:00 pm on Friday evening, Loveland ski area fired its snowmaking guns for the first time this season, kicking off the annual race to Opening Day in Colorado. Just a few hours later and a few miles on the other side of the Continental Divide, Arapahoe Basin followed suit.

Moisture mixed with a jet stream plummeting south from Canada brought snow throughout the high country, and air temperatures are now low enough at Loveland and A-Basin for productive snowmaking. It’ll probably be a few more weeks before you’re allowed on the mountain, but this is your signal to sharpen your skis and boards, put down the twelve-ounce curls, and pick up your fitness regimen!

Stay tuned to this blog, our Facebook page, and our Twitter account throughout the weekend for updates on exciting developments in Ski Country.
