MOUNTAIN (WLUK) -- Areas to the north saw more than four inches of snow fall through Friday night into Saturday morning. For most areas it's the first measurable snowfall of the season.

Driving from Green Bay to the town of Mountain offered quite the change in scenery for Ronda Schauer.

"There was no snow where we're coming at and you saw all these cars coming south and you see all the snow and it's like oh my goodness," Schauer said.

Schauer and her friend Michelle Cullen of Green Bay headed north for a fun stay in their cottage. They found the snow on the ground an added plus.

"We love the snow, we're snowmobilers, so super excited to see it already started so we just hope it stays," Cullen said.

Cole Hietpas of Appleton also loves snowmobiling and took advantage of the first snowfall.

He said, "We're going four wheeling on the trails and the trails close this weekend so we're going for one last ride before it's done."

Hietpas and his family plan to keep moving north for more flurries.

"When we came, it was raining and half way up we saw the snow and the more north we came, the more snow we saw, so its going to be exciting," said Hietpas.

"Excitement," that's the sentiment echoed by local hunters like Larry Banaszynski of Crooked Lake.

"Because we know now that deer hunting is closer and now we can track deer and all those good things with the snow," Banaszynski told FOX 11.

Banasyznki hopes people in the area make the most out of the first snowfall. He jokingly said, " Five minutes the weather will change."
