First Flakes

Duty requires reporting the first white on the hill, even if it is only a dusting way up top that will probably vanish shortly.

In another promising sign, towers for the new Bear Chair have started to appear in the upper parking lot and it isn't even October yet - the classic time for the ski hill to do EVERYTHING. :-)

At noon it is a chilly and gray 2 C at the house. I am having trouble getting up much enthusiasm for the mountain bike.

Polar peak and the Decline trinity in a shot taken from my porch. Its not much, but it is encouraging.
