First snow to the valley floor

first snow in the valley

Hopefully this will be the last time we see grass here until April.

It’s here. We have snow in the valley. Lots of hootin and a hollorin around the place this morning with everybody celebrating our sweet obsession. For the next 5 months we will be shoveling, blowing and pushing the stuff around. I’ll constantly be checking how much has fallen and assessing which would be the best resort for the day. I wait in anticipation for every storm as I have for this one that has breached another benchmark. The next exciting day will be the opening of one of the resorts. Put your vote in here  to pick the day and win some prizes. Welcome back winter. We’ve missed you.

And here is a picture of whats 1/2 way up the mountain.

1071 verticle meters can mean a big difference between the top of the mountain and what's happening in the valley.
