First snow on Mount Spokane, 2 inches at Schweitzer Mountain Resort

UPDATED: Wed., Oct. 31, 2018

Mount Spokane got a dusting of snow overnight and 2 inches of the white stuff fell at Schweitzer Mountain Resort in Idaho.

The Mt. Spokane Ski Patrol Facebook page posted a photo. It’s just a dusting. And weather forecasts for this winter are calling for a milder winter due to El Nino.

Still, that didn’t stop one eager Facebook commenter from writing “Let’s go snowboardng on Saturday.”

Soon enough.

In Idaho Schweitzer Mountain Resort had 2 inches of snow this morning, said Sean Mirus, the resort’s director of marketing.

And, it’s still snowing, he said.
