It’s that time of year again folks. When the god of snow, Ullr begins rustling from his long hibernation and breaths a cold yawn on the high peaks of ski country. That’s right, we’ve got our first snow of the season in both the Rockies and the Alps and the pictures to prove it (see below).

The Swiss and French Alps got quite a bit of the white stuff with over a foot falling on the upper elevations of Les Diablerets, Chamonix and Verbier. In the United States, Big Sky, Jackson Hole, Breckenridge, Aspen and Telluride all saw dustings above 12,000 feet. Unfortunately, it appears that Ullr is just tossing in turning and will eventually go back to bed until October, or at least that’s what NOAA is predicting.
