The first snows of the season are starting to ramp up and resorts all across North America are proudly showing off their first flakes. This time of year, thanks to the ubiquity of social media, we’re literally inundated with pictures of white fluff as soon as places get a fresh dusting.
Some of us are stuck in the sweltering heat of SoCal, so the sights of snow literally makes us salivate in eager excitement. We can't stop thinking about the big dumps that will soon be unloading everywhere this approaching winter season.
We know you guys get just as stoked as we do for freshie snow pics, so we’ve got a grip of them from resorts who are already working on their base totals.
While opening day at most resorts is still over two months away, we'll take what we can get snow-wise and hope these early season storms are an indicator of a deep winter to come.
