KUSA-TV in Denver reports that officials with the ski resort say they began making snow on Mambo and Home Run early Monday morning.

It all began with an April 2016 vote on local trustees held in the Gunnison County municipality of about 100 residents.

The Rockies were swept by Milwaukee when the bats went cold and they managed only two runs in three games. By Pat Graham. UPCOMING: 650 words, photos by 5:30 p.m
