Snow is making an early arrival at Kirkwood.
Sr. Communications manager at Vail Resorts Kevin 'Coop' Cooper tells KTVU he woke up at 4:30 a.m. Tuesday because he was so excited about the snow. "I was completely surprised," he said.
According to Coop there is about 4" of snow at 9,400' and about 1" at 7,800'. He says temperatures dropped to 29 degrees but they are slowly rising up.
Last year, the first snow did not fall in the area until October.
