We’re just five days into October and winter has already arrived at many Western U.S. ski resorts. On Monday and Tuesday, a storm system brought cold temperatures and snow for high elevation regions across Montana, Wyoming and Utah, dropping up to a foot at some resorts. More snowfall is expected in the coming days. Jackson Hole is reporting six to 12 inches, with drifts exceeding three feet. See video below.
The cold front caused by the storm has allowed several Colorado resorts, including Copper Mountain, to begin blowing snow, too. The storm cell also has Colorado in its sights, and OpenSnow’s Joel Gratz is forecasting up to four inches overnight for parts of the Centennial state.
Here’s a roundup of who made out best in the West (so far) and top snow-storm videos and photos.
