TUCSON - As Tucsonans woke up to the coolest September morning in 13 years, the San Francisco peaks were a Winter wonderland.

Arizona Snowbowl started snowmaking operations on Saturday night, which continued into Monday morning. Not only does this mark the earliest start to snowmaking for Snowbowl, the ski area near Flagstaff became the country's first to make snow this season.

Typically, Colorado ski areas Loveland and Arapahoe Basin are the first to start snowmaking operations. This year, Snowbowl officials will beat them both to take the title.

Arizona Snowbowl is set to open for ski season on November 10th. Click here for more information.
