You guys—it’s time! Well, maybe it’s not actually time, and we’re getting a little bit ahead of ourselves, but Wednesday night the mountains of the central Rockies saw their first significant snowfall. Resorts in Colorado, Montana, and Utah got stormed on. So, naturally, we decided to get ourselves psyched for ski season by checking out social media, and herein lies some of the gems we found. Winter, it’s coming.
Loveland Ski Area, which is high on the Continental Divide, is one of the first places in the country to open for ski season, but they say they’re still more than two weeks away from blowing snow. Despite that, Mother Nature gave them a little head start.
Arapahoe Basin, Loveland’s closest neighbor, got snow, too. The two resorts battle it out every year to see who can open the earliest.
North of there, Big Sky Resort, in Montana, saw their first significant snowfall, too. Temperatures in the area were in the 30s, which some locals were less than psyched about.
Whitefish Mountain Resort was reportedly all fogged in because of the storm, and this is what the view from their webcam looked like.
The storm rolled through Utah, too. It didn’t drop as much precipitation there, but it’s coming.
