As ski resorts everywhere prepare for the 2013/2014 season’s first glorious tracks, it's looking like they'll soon be able to check one major milestone off the list: snow. Flakes started falling across the country last week to the delight of many skiers, and all the while, ski areas had us drooling over these preseason crowd-pleasin' snow shots.  

Could winter really be here already? We can only hope this weather pattern sticks as we set our sights on perhaps an even more pressing question: who’s opening early? 

SEE WHICH RESORTS ALREADY GOT SNOW!
