It already snowed this week, a reminder that winter starts early around these parts. If you need another reminder, the Inlander is hosting its annual Snowlander Expo, a gathering of all things skiing, snowboarding and beyond. There will be massive sales on snow gear, and you can get your season pass photo taken care of for all the region’s resorts. Perhaps most alluring, though, is that entrance to the event gets you a lift ticket to either 49° North or Red Mountain Resort. See the Food section for more on the expo’s beer festival.
