Just a little dusting on Mt. Werner and Buff Pass, which is fine by me... every year we've had significant snowfall in Sept, it's been a sub-par winter.

All the best.

They had to close I70 for a bit around the tunnel because of heavy snowfall. Looks like just about everyone out west has had at least a sampling of snow. Here's to a good season for all.

Yeah, it does seem like that. At least this morning Snowbird only got about an inch, but last year at this time they got a foot. It's nice to have some rain in the valley too, it's been a really hot dry summer.

You won't be able to see anything even if they were up... as of this morning it was only a miniscule dusting (i.e. can be mistaken for frost) on the very top of the mountain which is clouded in right now.

ok, well then i dont feel so bad. if its a dusting, i can take it or leave it; but a serious 3 inches or more this early; i'm itching to see that(but i'm probably not the only one on this board in that group.)

The photo of the day shows how much was up there early this morning, not much... "snow" line was about half-way up Storm face ( 10000' or so)... could be a little more if the rain comes back, mtn top has been in clouds most of the day, sunshine came out awhile ago, it's been in and out all day. But early season snow is not necessarily a good sign, so I'd rather it go away for awhile.

Gpaul, you mean you want us to come visit you? It seems you are there already.

Yep, just a dusting on the peak this morning. Yesterday was definitely a fall day with cool temps and rain/snow mix. The clouds parted in the evening and there was a dusting down past Thunderhead but the sun today is quickly burning it off.

We usually get a taste this time of year but I agree with the other poster that too early is usually not a good thing as far as the year goes. Some of our best early season storms come mid Nov - riding the mtn bike one day and then POW - 4 feet of snow the next.

Regardless, it's coming!

I spent three years in Steamboat and remember one Fall in was like summer
with days in the 70's and 80's right into early November. We were laying down brick pavers at Ski Time Square in shorts/no shirts thinking when the hell is the cold weather going to come? The mountain was scheduled to open in only a few weeks at Thanksgiving. Well, right around Nov 10th the weather cooled and the storm clouds rolled in and we got measurable snow every day from then until late December with some huge dumps...In the course of 20 days I went from sweating in shorts to skiing bottomless powder in the trees over in Preist Creek and elsewhere..
