We get nearly 90 inches of snow in an average year in Boulder County. The first snowfall can happen any time between early September and late October.
The coming of snow season means it’s time again for the Daily Camera’s annual First and Last Snow Contest, presented by Welzig Heating & Air.
Each year, hundreds of local skiers, snow fans and outdoor aficionados place their best guesses in this popular contest – and then they  start watching the calendar! You could be the big winner.
We have some great prizes in store from Welzig Heating & Air for the winner. This is your chance to win your choice of a Whole House Humidifier with installation ($495 Value), an Upgraded Media Filter Kit with installation ($595 Value) or Whole House Duct Cleaning ($395 Value).
Entries must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. Sept. 30 or before the first snow. The person who most closely guesses the date and time of day of the first snowfall, (that means one inch or more as measured at the central Boulder County weather station) wins.
Hurry! The First Snow contest ends Sept. 30, so enter your best guess now at bit.ly/bocosnow.
