It’s Snowing!

Our inbox has been filling up with excited press releases from mountains seeing white out of their windows. Since these press releases are as smoky and uninteresting as you’d expect (aside from the obvious good news that winter is almost here), we’ll just give you the bullet points.

-Mammoth got a dusting 9 feet (or inches) last night, but the real news is opening day is scheduled for Thursday, November 10, 2011. Extra bonus: The Black Lips and Ra Ra Riot are playing to celebrate Saturday, November 12. For tickets and info: http://master.mammothmountain.com/ResortActivities/SpecialEvents/BWKO/

-This is what Sierra-at-Tahoe looked like this morning.

-Colorado has been issued a Winter Storm warning. According to Fox 31 Denver “A Winter Storm Warning goes into effect at midnight through 6 a.m. Friday for the San Juan and West Elk mountains in western Colorado. Meteorologist Jennifer Broome says 8-12″ of snow could fall at higher elevations. The region around Telluride and Crested Butte is also included in the warning area. A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect Thursday for much of the rest of Colorado’s Mountains. Snowfall of 3-6″ is expected at elevations between 7,000-9,000 feet.”

-And perhaps the most exciting to us, is that Timberline received its first snow yesterday as well. Boo yeah!
