Giveaway Alert: When Will We Get Our First Snow?

We’re doing a giveaway on the blog today! Leave a comment with your guess for the date of the first snowfall at Heavenly. One correct guess will win a Heavenly swag pack. 

With just 49 days until first chair, our team here at Heavenly is buzzing about when we’ll receive our first early-season snow.

We have a board in our offices where everyone has made their guesses:

My guess was 10/20 and personally I’m hoping for a huge dump, not just a light dusting. A couple years ago Heavenly was hit with a massive amount of snow in the early season, which set us up for a record-breaking year in terms of snowfall. This photo was in mid-November during 2010 and by Thanksgiving we had several feet of snowpak already.

We want to hear what your guess is for our first early-season snowfall too. Leave a comment on this blog post with your guess for the date and one right guesser will win a Heavenly swag bag with goodies like a t-shirt, hat, sticker and water bottle. We’ll give you a hint – typically we see our first snowfall in October – early Nov.

Here’s to a white early-season!

    it will be on 10/19—but that’s not what really matters—a little bird told me that Vail will be making the entire upper lot on the California side premium parking—meaning you need to pay to park—-any truth to this rumor?  I guess any way they can suck more money out of you the better (for them)…….
