"Cold Temperatures and Snow welcome the Tucson New Year"
The 2011 New Year was welcomed in Tucson with snow in the mountains and freezing temperatures on the valley floor.
Few people think of snow and skiing when they think of Tucson. The Santa Catalina Mountains, however, is home to the southernmost ski area in the United States. The ski slopes are located just an hour's drive from the sun-drenched resorts of Tucson, where area visitors can go golfing, swimming and downhill skiing in the same day.
Attached are some of the photos that were taken of the mountains yesterday evening.
