Colorado skies, and guns of September, start blasting snow

Yes, it’s the first day of fall. And for the last day of summer 2009, snow fell from the mountain skies, and Loveland Ski Area fired-up the snowmaking equipment. You can watch Loveland’s snowmaking progress here. From their website:

Cold temperatures and natural snowfall arrived earlier than expected allowing us to officially kick-off snowmaking for the 2009-2010 season. Crews fired up the system at 11:00 am, 3 days earlier than they were able to last season. With a favorable weather forecast for the next few days, conditions look good to get some good, productive hours in.

Colorado Ski Country USA blogged with member reports on the summer snow.

Keystone had a timely and savvy react to the change in the weather, with a slick video of the storm cut with stock powder footage to get you all excited.

And photographer Jack Brauer nailed a sweet last day of summer photo down in Ouray, Colorado.
