Mother nature is going wild right now.
California is burning, the midwest is -20°F below average highs, and it just DUMPED (for September) snow in the Rockies. What a wild week.
Let’s focus on the exciting news- early season snow out west! That’s what we all care about, right? Unless you’re Ski The East, maybe…
Unfortunately most ski resorts don’t release official snowfall totals this early in the season. I’ve done my best to gather info from the NWS, and the resorts’ webcams.
Check out snowfall totals from the across the region, and prepare yourself for some way-too-early season predictions from all of your buddies.
Winter is coming.

9/9/20 (10:00AM)- Keystone has not reported snowfall totals as of the time of this post. We can assume they have totaled around 4-6″ based on the reports from nearby Silverthorne and Arapahoe Basin.
9/9/20 (10:00AM)- No official report from the resort, yet. The NWS is reporting that 6″ has fallen on the town of Crested Butte. Does that mean more has fallen up-high?
