Many mountain areas saw their first cold snap of the year and with it their first measurable snowfall. This is not unusual as most mountain areas see their first snowfall around mid-late September. For us in and around Castle Rock; our first average date of snowfall is October 18 and the average first freeze is during early October.

Both of those time-frames are coming up pretty quick!
