NOAA Alaska today.  Snow is already piling up in Denali.

Alaska is ready for winter.  They’ve already gotten some decent snow this month and today, they’re going to add to it.

NOAA is calling for 8-20″ of snow for the Alaska Range today including in Denali National Park where they’ve already seen 6″ of snow today.  We’ve already seen photos of guys ripping 3-foot deep pow in the eastern Alaska Range this week.
