September is over which means we are creeping ever closer to some opening dates! Mother nature just keeps sending the cool flurries down and you know we are shaking in anticipation. Now is the time to wax our skis and boards with continued wishful thinking for just a few more inches (but really, we mean feet).

You know things are starting to get serious when the dusting sticks long enough to get a photo. Winter is poking its coy head out after a hot, hot summer! It may only be a light dusting, and the storms may be fickle, but we’ll take it! Several areas in Colorado, Utah, Canada and California saw another real dusting of snow this season. Snowbird in Utah takes the winning medal with a report of 6 inches. WOOO!
