Get those gloves out! Cool weather is here for the season. A few seasonal storms brought in rain and snow to California. By mid November there will be a good amount of snow in the Sierras. Ski season is already open, well before the holidaze. Yeah!

This means longer ski season & you still get to your shopping done early this year. Yeah right!

Mammoth Mtn - is already open for ski season!

Our annual Total Escape Adventures Autumn Cabin Trip to June Lake Loop gave quite a surprise with the golden leaves still changing - yet the granite peaks were naked. Snow often comes overnight and you wake to contrasting peaks. The white stuff starts falling around the Eastern Sierra in early October to mid-November. Each year is a bit different on timing & snow fall.
