While much of the country is still in the dog days of summer one Colorado has jumped a few seasons forward.

Video taken in Fairplay, Colorado shows the town covered in snowfall more — than 100 days until winter begins.

According to the National Weather Service, snow was measured at a depth of two inches on Wednesday at Hoosier Pass, a mountain pass located in the Mosquito Range.

It's not that shocking that the area would see snowfall — it's located at an elevation of 11,000 feet.
