The summer season came to an unofficial close this week, and our area resorts had a ton of activities going on.
As the gears start to turn to fall and winter (only 77 days give or take a few to opening day – but who is counting), there is still plenty of things going on around the area.
We take a look at some of the best social media posts of the week as we head into a GORGEOUS weekend in the High Country.
