Believe it or not, we were excited to see that the San Juan's are already seeing powder!  Last weekend, Silverton Mountain got 2 to 3 feet of snow which was enough to even carve some turns...  We are hopeful that this will be a sign of a great winter to come.  Check out the recent article in the Durango Herald about the fresh snow in Silverton.
