Are you ready for snow? Ski season is just around the corner, and we are giddy waiting for the slopes to open.
Heavenly Mountain's first snowman of the season
Mother Nature teased us on October 12 with light snow on the slopes at Heavenly Mountain. Yesterday’s snowfall gave us another taste of winter. Could it be a sign of above normal snowfall this season? We hope so. We know a lot of snowbirds are wishing to ring in the New Year racing down the powdered mountain.
