Rockin’ white after Labor Day, as we’ve all heard, is a huge fashion faux-pas…except when Mother Nature does it.

From light dustings to surprisingly impressive dumps, several mountains across North America have already been experiencing their first flakes of snow during these first weeks of September. And although there’s still a bit of time until ski resorts officially open, it’s enough to get skiers and snowboarders alike excited for this upcoming season.

Don’t believe us? Check out these photos from resorts across North America. (It’s O.K. to drool a little.)
