Winter is Coming: First Snow Kicks Off Early Ski Season

For ski enthusiasts all over the US, first snow is an exciting event. Getting out onto the slopes early in the season is pure bliss for snowsport participants.  Last year, Denver’s first snow was November 16th, setting the pace for a long ski season in Colorado. 2017 is bringing even earlier snowfalls, with resorts like Mammoth and Whistler getting snow in September and Colorado seeing snow in early October. “We’re going to have a really early ski season out in the west,” said Dan Leonard, senior meteorologist with the Weather Company.
