4” OF SNOW KICKS OFF THE SEASON AT SNOWSHOE MOUNTAIN RESORT

Snow began Friday night and continued on and off throughout the day Saturday. Additional accumulation possible Sunday.

SNOWSHOE, W.Va.- Winter didn’t wait long to kick into high gear at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. The Pocahontas County, W.Va resort saw four inches of snowfall on Saturday. The first flakes of the season were spotted just before midnight on Friday, September 30th and snow continued intermittently throughout the day on Saturday. Additional snowfall is expected through mid-day on Monday, with up to another inch of accumulation possible. Snowshoe is the first ski resort on the East Coast to record measurable snowfall this season.

With ski season just about six weeks away, Snowshoe also took advantage of cold temperatures on Saturday morning and fired up several of the resort’s powerful snowmaking guns. The resort plans to open for the winter season on Wednesday, November 23rd, just in time for the Thanksgiving Holiday. Regular snowmaking isn’t scheduled to begin until November 1st, but this early test allowed the resort to ensure equipment is in top shape with a new season just around the corner.
