Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) - It's an official sign of the changing seasons.
Thanks to forecasted colder temperatures, Spirit Mountain fired up its first snow making machines of the season Sunday night.
Officials say this is one of the earliest starts to snowmaking in many years.
And with below normal temps forecasted for the next few days, Spirit Mountain hopes to have enough snow on the slopes to have a few runs open by next weekend.
Officials with the resort say watch their website for official season opening times.
