The late hot spell has finally snapped, providing a nice cap to a summer that wasn't all that warm. We've still got a sweet forecast for the next 10 days or more, with some ideal early fall weather and only a couple chances for precipitation.
In the shade this week.
One of those chances is early Saturday morning when temps are supposed to bottom out in the mid-30's in the Valley. Any self-respecting skier or rider knows what this might mean. The bathing suits are still drying on the rack and we're already looking at a little taste of winter at the summits.
Fall color development seems to have paused in the heat, but there are still some nice trees popping.

More prep ... S-Parks turning the heat up on winter fun. Richie bringing the fire.

Look who showed up this morning. Heading south.

Our most colorful time of the year is here and winter is close behind. It's hard to believe, but snowmaking is scheduled to start in about 4 weeks. Reach out for a leaf line soon, peak foliage is nearly upon us.
