The Official "There's snow in them thar hills" picture thread

post #1 of 42
Thread Starter 
I have been meaning to post some pics of the snowfall in the mountains here to give hope to the lowlanders , and just to crow a bit, the dawn is coming. So I thought it'd be a good idea to have a specific thread for posting photos of the growing snowpack this fall. Sort of a photo diary.

Here is Snowbowl today.



Now lets see who else is close to the blessed zone.

The current view from my backyard. It's there. Those are the Indian Peaks. Winter Park is on the other side of them.

I wish I had a better camera and Photoshop. Yes, the hammock is quite comfy.

Booyah! That is looking bangin'. The Gullies look skiable already.

I know, looks can be deceiving, but it is a good start. I talked to a friend of mine who was working out at Big Sky the day before yesterday I think and he said there was six inches of snow on the ground.

Courtesy of the Jackson Hole Mountain Resort "Photo of the Day", here's the JH ski area this morning:



Nothing like Big Sky, of course, but not a bad start for early October.

FWIW it's been getting pretty chilly here at night in SF.

dunno what this bodes...last year we were still enjoying 80degree weather well into late Oct/early Nov...a seriously late and long "Indian Summer."

We're even supposed to have snow in the valley here on saturday. But then again it snowed last saturday too.

I don't know where Sam Fram's Disco is but if if it's where I think it is, I seriously doubt you had a true "Indian Summer" ( since that means warm weather after a killing frost. )

Here in Utah, last October/November was below average for temps, the ski areas opened about on average, but once January came the snow stopped for 5 weeks.

Basically, I don't think the current weather has much of a correlation to what's going to happen mid winter. But it would be nice if the wasatch gets enough snow to open early this year ( not that that really means anything for the rest of the season though ).

It was in the upper 80s in the Pokes today. The only thing I'm seeing accruing in the Poconos are roadside deer carcasses, all just left to bloat in the hot sun by PennDOT. Ahh, fall is here.

Here's Snowbird after the snow last week. ( Hopefully there's more than this after this next storm. )

Well, I have no idea where that is, but I guess you won't be hiking up the ski hill to make turns like I plan to this weekend. LOL.
