FRISCO —It’s not unusual for the high valleys of Summit County to see a snowfall in mid-October. At elevations of about 9,000 feet, the valley floors here are higher than the tallest summits in many areas, so when the autumn precipitation rolls through this time of year, it’s snow, as often as not. Still, that first dusting is always exciting and worth a few photos — even if it quickly melts away again. And even as ski area marketing flaks breathlessly tweet about #winterisback in hopes of selling just a few more passes, long-time mountain residents know that there’s still plenty of autumn left. Never a good reason to hurry the seasons — remember, Ullr doesn’t like to be rushed! All pictures, with the exception of the pine bough shot, are with iPhone.
