It’s always exciting to get the first snow for the season. This year it was very early and although it will be gone by now, it still gets everyone fired up around here. The equinox has just passed so the days will be shorter and the temperatures colder. Everyone is starting to talk about their new ski’s or what other gear they need to get, season passes for which mountain and also stressing out about getting those last minute jobs done before it really starts snowing down in the Valley. It reminded me that I needed new gloves.
