Appalachian Closes Due to Weather –

Just in…and as expected Appalachian Ski Mountain is now CLOSED due to the inclement weather. One look at the skicam will support their decision. As expected, the moderate rain hit again midday today and that did the deed.

Appalachian has stated that they will reopen Friday or Saturday…but we can tell you that they will not be open Friday based on what we’re seeing. If that changes, we will update you. They (and ALL other resorts) will begin making snow at some point tomorrow evening and from then on for a prolonged period…and they MAY certainly reopen on Saturday.

No doubt…this is the last of the rain (today and Friday) and cold weather and some snow is moving in for the weekend…and as stated before, resorts all over the Southeast will be in GREAT shape into next week and for the Holiday period ahead.
