Wow! The First Flurries Of The Season At Showdown
Let The First Flurries Fly!
Is it here already?
In all honesty, I'm not sure where summer went.
As we reluctantly bid adieu to the waning days of summer, Showdown Montana ski area has generously provided a captivating preview of the imminent change of seasons.
On Thursday, September 21, 2023, the region experienced its inaugural snowfall, casting a magical, frosty spell.
The weather folks had been predicting this early snowfall for a few days, mainly focusing on altitudes that soar above the 6,000-foot mark.
The wetter conditions are expected to stick with us until Saturday morning before we warm up slightly.

Showdown, which sits at an elevation of approximately 8,200 feet, stood proudly among the anticipated snow-kissed landscapes.
It appears a few other mountain ranges picked up a dusting as well.
It certainly didn't last long, though, I checked the cameras in the afternoon and it was all melted already.
Originally created in 1936, Showdown is Montana's oldest operating ski area, as well as one of the oldest in the United States. It was originally called King's Hill Ski Area, and was operated by the Great Falls Ski Club. In 1940, the ski area opened its first Rope Tow, donated by Great Falls businessman Charlie Bovey.
