It’s such a magical time of year when all the major mountain websites go from their summer sites full of hiking, camping, mountain biking, and kayaking to their winter sites – full of snow! That’s right, the 06/07 season is finally here. The industry is buzzing with excitement as the snow is coming early. Colorado high country received their first snow of the season about two weeks earlier than normal. Meanwhile, everyone is trying to figure out what this year’s El Nino might mean to snow conditions.
I’ve got my first trip planned to Winter Park for Thanksgiving. I must say, the trip is a great deal put together by the Snowballers Ski Club. Travel and lodging is coming in at under $350 per person and the package includes discounts on lift tickets and equipment. I’ve organized cheaper trips, but finding such a good deal is rare.

Here’s to a great season! :D
