Snow in Winter Park, ColoradoSnow at Winter Park Resort

That’s right we got snow today up in Winter Park!  It has been snowing off and on all day and it definitely feels like winter is starting to nudge fall out of the way.  No, we didn’t get as much snow as the picture on the left but we did get some sticking to the ground, yes a measurable amount.  The “when will it first snow in Winter Park contest” is over and a winner will be announced here shortly.

It was great summer up here in WP but it was a nice sight to wake up to some snow on the ground and a cold chill in the air.  Nothing like a some white stuff on the ground to get the skiing juices flowing.  Winter Park Resort opens November 18th, 2009 and that is not a day too soon.  That means there are only 58 days until the Resort opens, but who is counting?  ME, I am.  If today’s weather forecast is any indication we are in for a lot of snow this winter.  El Nino 2006 brought a whole bunch powder our way and here is hoping for a bunch for El Nino winter 2009/2010.

Now is the time to reserve your Winter Park ski lodging.  Remember until the end of September it is only 25% down to reserve your Winter Park, Colorado vacation lodging.
