A Little Bit of Snow To Talk About This Morning

The picture above is from Wintergreen the other day.  Just thought I’d get that out there!

Well, it didn’t snow quite as much as we’d have liked it to but there is some snow to talk about this morning nonetheless.  Below are the totals as of this morning.  Some of them, mainly the dusting or trace reports, are me looking at a combo of webcams and CoCoRaHS and basing it off of that.  I had to do it this way as some of the closed ski areas, and even a couple of open ones, aren’t reporting anything.

Appalachian Ski Mountain: Trace
Beech Mountain Resort: 1″
Cataloochee Ski Area: Dusting
Sugar Mountain: 1″

Canaan Valley: 0.7″
Snowshoe Mountain: 2″
Timberline: 0.7″
Winterplace: Dusting

Ober Gatlinburg: Trace

Wisp Resort: Dusting

Some light snow showers and flurries are expected to continue here in NC this morning, but for the most part it’s over.  Up into West Virginia it’s a different story though.  The NWS forecast for Snowshoe, Canaan, and Timberline is calling for another 1-3″ today, with snow showers continuing tomorrow.  I”m looking at the Shaver’s Centre cam at Snowshoe right now, and it’s coming down pretty good.  I’m seeing some fat flakes.


Wherever you go today, make sure to bundle up.  It’s pretty windy and visibility is low.  Combine those things with ongoing snowmaking and you’ll want to make sure you are layered up properly.

With the snow and cold, there’s comes some additional trail openings today.  Snowshoe bumped their count up to 16 today.  I suspect that will continue to increase over the next few days.  Sugar is back up to 10 trails today.  Finally, Cataloochee  is up to 10 trails today and more importantly, they are open to the top.  Awesome!

We’ll have a lot more trail openings to talk about in the coming days as Bryce, Massanutten, Wintergreen, Canaan, Timberline, and Winterplace all open either Friday or Saturday.  I’ll get together a list of exact dates as well as some of the events that are happening this weekend and share that with you guys tomorrow.  With the natty snow and snowmaking all week, we should have some fantastic conditions this weekend.  Can’t. Wait. To. Ride. Saturday.

Just an FYI before I go, we still have that big announcement to talk about.  I’m hoping we can get it out ASAP, so stay tuned.

Until tomorrow.

In addition to his Appnet duties, he helps with day to day operations of Ski Southeast and is also in charge of our sister site, ResortCams.com. In his own words... "I discovered this website a few years back and visit it on a daily basis. I lurked on the messageboard for a while before becoming actively involved and have met some very cool people because of it. Needless to say, I am VERY stoked to be a part of the team and I think I have a unique insight into what people want from the site seeing as I used to be on the outside looking in. I'm sure some people who are reading this have seen me on the mountain before. I am frequently at Beech Mountain and it’s not hard to spot me, as I usually have a camera on my head. I love to document my days on snow and have posted some videos on the messageboard before. If you ever see me out there, feel free to say hey!" You can email Kenny directly at [email protected]
