Arapahoe Basin, received its first dusting of snow for the 2019-2020 season early Thursday morning.
“And so it begins. Not sure if it is snow, hail, sleet, slush or what, but the first white stuff of the season was high on the East Wall this morning,” Arapahoe Basin COO Alan Henceroth announced on his blog Thursday morning.
So it might have been hail, BUT from what we learned earlier this summer NOAA classifies hail as snow. So if it’s white, it’s snow.
