Base Depths Climbing, More Slopes and Resorts are Opening!

Cataloochee reopens today for day skiing and you can expect all North Carolina ski resorts to open by Friday. Snowmaking conditions over the last 24+ hours have been perfect and all resorts have really increased their base depths. (All resorts are making snow today as well.)

Appalachian increased their average base depth by A FOOT in the last 24 hours and all resorts will be pouring it on today as well, since the high temps for today will remain in the 20s most places with a chance for some areas to see 30°. Appalachian has said that they will only make snow on trails not open during ski sessions today so that’s great news for all skiers and riders.

Looking for Lodging for Christmas or anytime this season? We feature many great lodging choices in the area, but we want to give a special plug today for two beautiful vacation rentals called "A Slice of Heaven". These are phenomenal rentals that can sleep (8) or so, with fireplaces, huge decks and views of Hawksnest Resort. They are convenient to Hawksnest and Sugar Ski areas and only 20 minutes or so to Ski Beech. Check out their website at www.ASliceofHeaven.com

The forecast is for MORE of the same kind of temps today…and a little milder on Thursday with normal temperatures and the weekend should be great for skiing and snowboarding. The next change for snow is Sunday and Monday as a BIGGER SNOW EVENT is being forecasted for those days with colder temperatures than the last few days! BRING IT ON!
