Skiers and snowboarders rejoice! Arizona's two major ski resorts have snow.

Before you get too excited, it's not nearly enough to open, but it is reason to celebrate as we inch closer to winter.

Dave Smith at Arizona Snowbowl in Flagstaff says, "we did receive 2-4" of snow from this storm system.  It's been quite a day in Flagstaff."

Smith says the Scenic Skyride is operating for the next two weekends and that season passes for the coming winter season are on sale at the pre-season rate through this Wednesday, Oct. 17.

In the White Mountains of Arizona, Sunrise Park Resort got a dusting of snow according to Myra Wagner as she excitedly said, "winter is just around the corner!"
