Halloween brings first snowfall to Steamboat Ski slopes

3 inches of fresh snow were measured at Thunderhead on the morning of Halloween, a magical present for snowpunters anticipating the start of the skiing and snowboarding season. The forecast is for highs in the mid-30s and low 40s, and overnight lows from 10 to 15, which means of course that the snowmaking will be kicking at full throttle.
