winter park ski vanI know its only August but it has hit below 30°f  the last three mornings and is starting to get chilly at night here in Winter Park, Colorado.  So I’m wondering when is the usual first measurable snowfall in the Winter Park/Fraser area?  I did a Google and Bing search and couldn’t find much info.  So to make it interesting I thought we could have a little contest that whoever can pick the day  that Winter Park Resort gets their first measurable snowfall then it is two free lift tickets to that person.  Anyone can play but the guess obviously needs to be in before the snow.  For lack of a better source we will use the Winter Park Resort Snow Report from their website, even though it is lame and says they have had 26.5 inches of snow in the last 24 hours (this being August 13th).  They must be in a different world, I’m just down the road and no snow here since late May.  Anywho, 2 free lift tickets or, for those who have Winter Park ski passes, free dinner and drinks for two at a Winter Park Restaurant for he or she that can pick the first measurable snow at Winter Park Resort.  I will be the first one to pick!  Only one guess per person and your first guess is it.

The ski season is coming upon us, only 97 days until the projected opening.  Come up and ski Winter Park.  Get your Winter Park ski lodging now!
