Five Places to Visit for Early Snow Fun


As November kicked off this week, fall is in full swing. The fall leaves have changed colors and are dropping to the ground, baseball season is over and the holidays can’t be too far away. However, while many places in America maybe settling into fall, some are already experiencing the beginning of winter, as there are many places you can travel to that have already enjoyed their first snowfall. Below, you’ll find five destinations in the U.S. for some fall winter fun.


Jackson Hole, Wyoming: It’s hard to talk about adventures in the snow and not talk about Jackson Hole. Located in Wyoming amidst the Grand Tetons, Jackson Hole is a great destination any time of year, but is already getting things ramped up for the winter. A visit now for snowmobiling and skiing means you get to beat those busy winter crowds.


Pagosa Springs, Colorado: You could almost pick any destination in Colorado for some early season snow fun, but Pagosa Springs is one of the first to report snow this fall. Just south of Colorado Springs, Pagosa Springs was celebrating winter early with October snow. Visits to the small ski destination can enjoy skiing at Wolf Creek Ski Resort, whose lifts are already open for the year.


Mt. Hood, Oregon: With a snow-capped peak any day of the year, you would expect one of the highest peaks to be on this list. However, not only does Mt. Hood, Oregon already have snow, but many of the nearby ski resorts have seen some of their first snow sightings. Head to the area and you’ll find several ski resorts already in full-swing for the upcoming winter.


Park City, Utah: Often overlooked by many of the other states in the west, Utah features some of the best skiing and snowboarding in the country. Park City is ahead of the game this year as they’ve already had their first reported snow, a small amount, just a week ago. Give it just a couple more weeks, when Park City really gets going for the upcoming winter.


Bethel, Maine: We couldn’t have a list of snowy destinations for the fall without including an east coast destination. Being so far north, Maine is often one of the first states to see snow each year. Bethel and the surrounding area feature several ski resorts that are already open to visitors.
