If this fall-like weather has you pining for snowy slopes, here's an antidote: The folks at Winter Park are sharing these photos of the resort's first noticeable dusting of snow, with a note:
The first full day of fall brought plenty of snow to Winter Park Resort, which has already begun gearing up for the start of ski/ride season on November 13, just 51 days away. About two inches of fresh snow fell around the base area, with estimates of six inches and more on higher peaks.
