Ober Gatlinburg is starting their season today with the Back in Blue Rail Jam. The gates open at 4:00, practice is at 6:00, and the competition starts at 7:00. What a great way to start the season. Click here for more information, http://www.obergatlinburg.com/event/104/.
And speaking of season starts, Massanutten announced yesterday that they are targeting Friday November, 29 to open the Tubing Park and Saturday November, 30 to open the slopes for the season. The more the merrier I say!
Warm weather has set in for most of the Southeast ski resorts with a chance of rain just about everywhere. Looks like the resorts in MD, WV, & VA are looking at a 50% or greater chance of rain, while the NC Mountains are looking at 40% and less. The chance for snow is still in the forecast, but now for Sunday instead of Saturday/Saturday night. Regardless, snow making temps will return Saturday night. But you know how these predictions can be…
Taking a quick look at the cams this morning, it appears that Sugar has blue skies while Cataloochee is a bit overcast.

As the saying goes in the mountains, if you don’t like the weather just wait a minute.
