First snow of the year

post #1 of 124
Thread Starter 

The first snow of the year is always good to see.  I could see snow up high today from my house for a few moments when the clouds opened, and the webcam at Sunshine shows a nice white blanket.  It will go away before more comes, but it is still welcome.

Jackson Hole posted this today. 

 

What a day! We had the first snow of the season and were voted #1 North American Resort by SKI Magazine. It’s going to be an incredible season.

The elk are in rut, the Aspens are turning, the Larches up high are almost yellow, the bears have eaten all the berries....time to think about skiing

My guess is when TC wrote "Jackson Hole posted this today", what follows after is what Jackson Hole posted today, to include the text.

I'm sure there is snow up above Durango now. Or at least a few feet of hail.  Tonight we got into the flooding game.  My drive home is along Florida road and I encountered mudslides and hail coming down harder and faster than I have ever seen in my entire life.

What kills me is that if this whole biblical flood storm system had come a few weeks later, all of Colorado would be open for business with a 100" base in September, and a lot of people would be alive, a lot of houses and bridges would still be standing, etc.

Termination dust on the Chugach according to friends in Anchorage.  

Perhaps nowhere more beautiful this time of year (when you can see it).

The mountains around Big Sky are looking mighty fine today, too. Lone Peak got hammered yesterday! Such a tease.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm hoping that it's at least a good sign for the season. Though 100 inch storms would create their own problems...

They would, but the avalanche risk and property damage from same would affect a much smaller area.

 

It looks like the flow of moisture has shifted away just in time for ski season.

Looks like the 1st winter storm could hit the West next week.

Not sure what that means, there's been pics of Big Sky and Tahoe already posted. Do you mean "significant accumulation"?

Snow forecast for the Northern Cascades starting Sunday above 6,000'.  tick, tick, tick------------------

post #21 of 124

Wow!  That's exciting.  It's still in the 90's here.  We've had 73 days in the triple digits so far this summer and it's probably not over yet.  Come on Winter!

post #22 of 124

Loveland web site says 6 days until snowmaking!  Hope we have a better start this year in Colorado.

Noofus, lovebug, cbire880 ready for Ironman Tahoe
Not sure if the anticipated snow
post #27 of 124

Yes the first winter front of the season delivered a nice though short dose of rain here in the SF Bay Area.   Outside of a couple trivial bouts of very spotty thunderstorms, it has been bone dry since May.  With the first day of fall upon us, shorter days, and noticeably cooler temps, ski enthusiasts ought to start taking notice.  I still need to purchase my season pass that is looking like the Tahoe Local Pass, for this year, so might bother to do that this coming week.
