Rendezvous Mountain Tram Peak

First snow of the 2016 season hits US resorts

It is mid-September, and for all of you who have been patiently waiting, we’re happy to say that snow is finally here.

While the high-altitude peaks in Colorado and Montana have been receiving mild dustings over the past two weeks, we are happy to say resorts across the West have officially entered winter mode. On Monday, Jackson Hole reported their first serious blanket, and just last night snow hit Utah, giving Snowbird and surrounding Utah locals the first glimpse of winter 2017.

For those across the North East, winter may still be just a little ways out, but it is never too early to start getting excited.
