The snow has arrived......

The first few flakes of snow hit the ground this morning........and thankfully disappeared instantly! First frost this morning too....here comes winter.....get the beater out and sharpen the studded tires!

yep, we got snow here in Munich for the first time last night. It was right about freezing so the snow only stuck on the cars and about half of the grass surfaces. Only about 1cm in total... and it mostly melted by the morning (i was out late at Octoberfest)

we have already gotten a fair amount of snow in the mountains and they may have to cancel my MTB race this weekend or change the course, because the highest pass is 1900m!

probably another 4-5 weeks before i mount the studded tires on the commuter...

i'll keep riding through the winter, but mostly for commuting, but i've ready for ski touring! but the season's not over - i have a race this weekend and then going to Lake Garda Italy for 4 days the following weekend --- a little furthert south for (hopefully) a last few great climbs and trails for the year.

Northern Minnesnowta has had a dusting, but nothing in the Twin Cities. Still too early, another month then...

Ditto for Northern Colorado ... the resorts are starting to get some snow, but nothing up near the Colo-Wyo. border yet ...

Several of our area mountains reported a dusting of snow.

Yes, I am a season's pass holder! Can't wait to get on my board!

Alta ski resort picked up 15" of snow in the last 24hrs... The ride i did last week is now snowed in, with over a foot of the fresh stuff on the roads. As far as i know, they havent sent up a plow yet.

I'm starting to get fed up by the warm and dry weather we have since mid-May or early June.

We had two cool days in September (10-12°C) and are having one now (13°C), but we still might expect temperatures in the 20s next weekent. No snow in sight yet.

Regards,
