An early fall storm descended on Summit County these past few days. Yesterday morning Breckenridge Ski Resort had eight inches of snow at the base with almost a foot of new sonw at the top of the mountain.
Last night I had an additional foot of snow at my home in Breckenridge. That probably means at least twice that much on the mountain.
It is starting off just like last year when we had a big snowstorm in early October.
The 2007 Farmer's Almanac is predicting this winter to be more snowy than normal for the Colorado Rockies. Snowmaking is set to begin in mid-October for Breckenridge and Keystone.
The early snowfall has resort officials excited for opening day with Breckenridge and Keystone both opening on Friday, November 10.
