The Rockies are currently getting pounded with snow.  Here is a photo fresh from the top of Vail mountain, thanks to Pat Barrett. Talk about getting turns in before work - it's still dark!

"I live in Vail and skied this morning on Golden Peak! We had a few inches of fresh snow last night and are expecting more today and tomorrow. We had to hike up of course, as the mountain does not open until Nov. 20, but it was fun to be skiing in October! We’re hoping for another hike tomorrow morning with more powder!"
