First Snow of Season for Rocky Mountain National Park

17 Sep 2017 – Two other national parks, Yellowstone and Grand Teton, also reported snowfall.

Rocky Mountain National Park posted a snapshot from their Alpine Visitor Center camera, saying that it’s the first snow to hit the high country there this season and that some roads were closed as a result.

On it’s Facebook page, Yellowstone said that the hills east of Mammoth Hot Springs were blanketed Saturday morning, and that the winter-like weather was expected to continue.

As in Rocky Mountain National Park, some Yellowstone roads were closed due to the snow, but reopened Sunday morning.

  1. Is this early? Large amounts for the time of year? This needs context for those of us who don’t live in the Rocky Mountains.

  2. These last few days snowfall have been heavier than we saw in the Northern Rockies all last year, the only thing keeping it from accumulating was it went from 80 to 25 degrees, so warm ground. Now it appears that the Sierra in California could also get snow this week, so yes, then there are glaciers there. It’s very difficult to to deny the early winter here.
