Working on Winter Snow

November is the month we start working on building our snowpack for the winter. The mountains have between six inches to a foot of snow right now, according to the area SnoTels. White Pine Ski Area typically opens around Thanksgiving for their snow sport season, weather permitting.
The Upper Green River Valley is still bare, with no sign of snow in the near future weather report. This is giving everyone a short window to finish up any last-minute chores or winterizing in relatively nice weather before Wyoming reminds us that it is past time for winter to descend.
