First major snowfall of the season.

 Last night and early this morning a heavy rain pounded the valley and through the clouds rising from the mountain peaks we saw the evidence of the first major snowfall of this season.

Of course it has snowed already in the high country, reports from people who hiked up to Williams Lake last weekend said they were able to scrape up enough of the white stuff to have a snowball fight. But this  snowfall was significant, reaching down the mountain to probably 10.000' and it's safe to say that it won't be going away until the runoff begins in the spring and early summer.

 At lower elevations, and in the valley, it almost always snows before Halloween. And with it only a week away there's still the possibility that one day soon there will be a significant snowfall in the low country. If you can call 7,000' low country.

 No doubt the skiers and boarders were overjoyed to see this first major snowfall, especially with all the talk about La Nina and the chance of warmer and drier weather this winter.

Early snow means good skiing

 Let's just hope that we're fortunate enough to have another winter like the past few, with enough significant snow events, the resorts at Taos Ski Valley, Red River, Angel Fire, Sipapu and Costilla will continue to provide high adventure for locals and visitors alike.
