Snow Alert: Winter Is HERE at These Five Resorts

by Kirsten Dobroth | September 25, 2017

It might only be September, but early season snow at ski resorts around the country has one thing for certain; winter isn’t just on its way — it’s here, and currently dumping at resorts around the West. The northwest and big areas of California, Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah were just blanketed in white fluffy stuff, along with much of Colorado ski country (with more on the way!) seeing snow over the weekend. Mt. Bachelor even opened part of its park thanks to its late September dusting. It might not be quite time to grab your fat skis (although, some resorts are claiming legitimate powder days), but we’re pretty sure the following images will have you pining over them as they sit in the corner (and maybe even doing a few dances of your own to Ullr).
