This wintry weather is certainly a welcome sight for skiers and snowboarders across the valley: nine inches of snow fell at Bogus today!

A spokesperson from Bogus Basin says they've sold several thousand lift tickets today.

6 On Your Side caught up with one little boy who's getting ready to learn to ski for his very first time tomorrow-- with a little help from his big sister.

"Parker this is pizza... and this is french fries!" said the young girl.

"It's just so much fun to play in the snow, and so, we have a lot of people in lessons, that are up just having a great time, and of course we have our Nordic Center Cross-country Ski Races going on this weekend," said Susan Sadd, Director of Community and Customer Relations, Bogus Basin.

Worth mentioning: a crash on Bogus Basin Road this afternoon shut down traffic in both directions for a short time.

So if you want to head up to enjoy the fresh snow, drive carefully!
