The Fall Countdown 

Snowlander Editor's Note

Can you believe it's that time of year again? It felt like fall would never get going after a long, hot summer. But the temperatures are starting to drop and so is the much-needed rain. November is right around the corner — which means opening days are within a reasonable countdown.

The most asked question by ski and snowboard enthusiasts thus far: What will El Niño do this year? Regional resorts are confident that the predicted snow pattern will be more favorable for this winter, with many stating, "It can't be any worse than last year." Agreed. Although even in a bad snow year, there's plenty of fun to be had, events worth driving to the mountains for. Many Inland Northwest skiers and riders proved that last season, keeping positive through a dry winter. Let's put last season behind us and, in preparation for this winter, start doing our snow dances now to show Mother Nature and Ullr — the god of snow — that we're serious about wanting our winter back.

Over the next month, we'll be tying up all the loose ends in the preparation process for the Snowlander Expo, PowderKeg Brewfest and Washington Trust Rail Jam. We've moved the weekend back a couple of weeks, to Nov. 20-21. We're excited this year to offer seminars from our vendors that will help you be better prepared for the falling snow and your time on the mountain. Again this year, the show will feature regional resorts and a huge sale by area retailers, as well as many other industry-related vendors. We're looking forward to hosting one of the region's biggest celebrations of the winter season. Check out our website and social media outlets for more information and event announcements.

Think snow!
