Georgetown, Colo. (AP) - Loveland Ski Area is marking it's earliest start of the season in 40 years.

The ski area was revving up it's chairlifts at 9 a.m. Wednesday, making it the first in Colorado to open for the season.

Loveland might also be the first ski area in North America to start the season.

Troy Hawks of the trade group National Ski Areas Association says he's not aware of any other resorts that have opened yet.

It plans to open Friday, it's earliest start ever.

Colorado Ski Areas took advantage of recent cold weather start making snow early.
