I woke up today to a fine dusting of snow on my deck chairs, the mountainsides and our car. Trees are sporting winter coats, and temperatures are cooling.
According to OpenSnow on Facebook, "Colorado is locked into the storm track and has the potential to receive 2+ feet over the [next] 10 days." Click here for the snow forecast.
Precipitation started on Tuesday (early morning) and will continue intermittently through next week. Right now I'm seeing snow for on the books almost every day and definitely this weekend.
There's nothing like early season snow to get me in a good mood.
With that in mind, here are my top picks for Vail Valley This Week.
