Keystone, Colorado—Oct. 25, 2010— The Halloween treats came a bit early this week with Mother Nature showing Colorado some love Monday morning as snow continues to accumulate through Summit County and the Vail Valley.

November 19, 2010 marks Vail and Heavenly’s opening day, with Beaver Creek opening on November 24, 2010.
