Arizona Snowbowl officials say the resort has begun making snow for the upcoming winter season.

Resort General Manager J.R. Murray tells the Arizona Daily Sun it is the earliest they have ever done this.

The resort brought out its snow guns over the weekend during the night.

Murray says freezing temperatures and dry air are ideal conditions for snowmaking.

The resort expects to continue making snow from now through the ski season when conditions are favorable.
