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.
