When the snow comes through, the Valley is still hot with activity!
Our winters range from mild to moderate, and with the elevation differences, our many ski resorts enjoy plenty of snow while our residential areas stay relatively warm. This isn't to say we don't enjoy our fair share of winter wonderland in the Valley; we have seen some incredible snowfalls in recent years that have kept families on the slopes sledding and skiing throughout the season.
