The mountains mixed seasons over the weekend, as early fall offered a preview of winter, and left a white coating on Baldy. This scene from Sun Valley comes courtesy of a strong Pacific storm—and corresponding cold front—that pushed through the region on Friday night, according to Greg Kaiser, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pocatello. Kaiser’s prediction calls for a colder-than-average October, with more precipitation than normal, followed by a warmer, wetter winter—but don’t blame him if that doesn’t come to pass. “When you get that far out, nothing’s set in stone,” he said. “But in the mountains, that doesn’t mean bad skiing at all.”
