Snow Hits Boulder and Denver Area

Snow Hits Boulder and Denver Area

Boulder, CO Sept. 28--The SkiNet office opened its' doors this morning to heavy snowfall that turned the Pearl Street Mall into a winter wonderland.

Snow hit the Boulder/Denver area bringing the region its first taste of winter. Snow has accumulated on grassy areas and the forecast calls for up to five inches in the metropolitan area and even more in the foothills.

"Waking up to the snow made me feel like running through the streets like Jimmy Stewart in It's A Wonderful Life," said SKIING Magazine's assistant editor, Shawn Magee. "Except I'd be naked and the snow would be marshmallow fluff."

Local lore has it that if the first snowfall takes place in September that Colorado is in for a good snow year. However, mums the word with snow pessimists, who believe that buying into the hype could very well be a jinx.

Meanwhile, up in the high country, Loveland, Keystone, and Breckenridge have all fired up their snow guns this week in a race to become the first area to open. For the past two seasons, Loveland has held the title, beating Keystone by merely days. Loveland hopes to open within the first two weeks of October.
