Skeptical? Photos of Silverton Mountain's Shocking Early Powder

New, 1 comment

Silverton Mountain shocked the interwebs on Monday with photos from an early season powder fest. The resort's photo shows a skier catching turns and throwing up a snow plume that is more reminiscent of January then September. Social media followers were so skeptical the resort was forced to post a second photo from the day, with the headline "Not convinced? Seeing is Believing!" Whether or not the photos took advantage of some serious wind loaded faces, it's definitely starting to look like winter out there.

Seven hours after Silverton posted the first photo of a snowy wonderland, they posted this photo.

What do you guys think? Are these legit powder turns or are there bushes and grass hiding just out of the frame? Let us know in the comments.
