Silverton, Echo Mountain open for the season

SILVERTON, Colo. (AP) – Two more Colorado ski areas are opening for the season.

Silverton Mountain in southwestern Colorado and Echo Mountain west of Denver are opening terrain on Wednesday. Echo is offering $29 lift tickets through Dec. 18 while Silverton has $39 tickets.

Silverton is also changing its operating schedule and says it will offer mid-week ski days early this season since Purgatory is only open on weekends for now.
