The 2013 ski season has gotten off to a good start for the West Virginia Ski Industry with favorable weather conditions and visitation is up this season after last year’s mild weather start. Nationally, January is Learn To Ski and Snowboard Month and the West Virginia Resorts, thanks to Governor Earl Ray Tomblin, have participated in on the month long event. The Governor on Thursday will be proclaiming through his office, that January has been officially Learn To Ski and Snowboard Month in West Virginia. West Virginia Ski Resorts are coming off a very strong Martin Luther King Holiday weekend, as all are reporting improved numbers over last year. The national promotion is designed to attract new skiers and snowboarders into a sport which will help the state’s resorts grow.
