It's about friggin time.
Like I try to do every year. I post a blog story about the first snowfall of the year. Well it happen yesterday. The Colorado high country saw the first snow of the season. The picture above was taken at Copper on Monday September 21st. I have been waiting for this day since the last snowfall of the season last year. Here is the story:
The snowbirds are already shivering in their shoes, but skiers and snowboarders are cheering the arrival of the season's first snow in Colorado's high country. Above is a photo taken at Copper Mountain yesterday morning (Monday, September 21). CBS's Denver affiliate, KCNC Channel 4's 10:00 p.m. news last night (and presumably other stations' news too) reported that snow-hungry locals in nearly Breckenridge were seen around town in their ski duds, carrying their boards, and Loveland fired up its snow guns yesterday as well. And this morning's newspapers printed first-snow-of-the-season pictures too. It's a perpetual early-opening ski area -- historically often the first in the nation, in fact.
