Snow is Falling by the Foot!
Snow is falling by the foot in Colorado's mountain towns. Some ski resorts are considering opening earlier than anticipated.

While today is the first day of autumn it looked a lot more like the first day of winter. As of yesterday evening the Breckenridge Ski Resort was reporting 22 inches of snow about halfway up the mountain.
"We might have 3 feet of snow," said Nicky DeFord, spokeswoman for the resort.
Other ski towns reported: Keystone, 15 inches, Beaver Creek, 20 inches; Vail, 24 inches; Silverthorne, 8 inches; Dillon, 7 inches.
