Signs of Winter: Colorado Gets Its First Snowfall

September 15th, 2011 by

As movie premieres start to roll out across the country and magazines start hitting mailboxes,  the snow has already started falling in Colorado. It seems earlier and earlier every year, but the question is, is that a bad thing?

Some will swear it off and want to hold on to the sunny warm weather that summer has blessed us with for the past few months. Snowboarders will sit and wonder if this will be the season of all seasons. As rumors spread around the Snowboard mag offices of another La Niña year, the only thing to do is pray to Mother Nature and ask her to outdo herself from last year.

So here we are, at the beginning of another season and the snow is already falling. Here is a collection of first snowfall shots from around Colorado.
