Last week we saw the first flakes fall in Canada, and this week, ski resorts in the Western U.S. received their first snowfall of the season.

Squaw Valley documented flurries starting to stick on the slopes, and, while Jackson Hole’s peaks were concealed in the clouds, the snow-frosted tram revealed that conditions at Corbet’s Cabin were very wintry. In our backyard in Aspen Snowmass, we felt the sharp autumn bite in the air, but we were surprised to see how much snow fell on Mt. Daly and other Snowmass peaks once the storm cleared.

It’s not unusual for September storms to coat high-elevation peaks with their first snow, especially in places like Jackson Hole and Aspen Snowmass. Regardless of the normalcy, this first sight of snow always gets us excited for the ski season to come! Check out the photos and videos below to see where it snowed in the Western U.S. this week.
