Appalachian Ski Mountain – It was 21° this morning and they made snow. Appalachian has closed a couple of trails to focus snowmaking efforts on them. Today they will offer 7 of 10 slopes including the Appal Jam Terrain Park. We expect Appal Jack, Thin Slice and Hard Core to reopen before the weekend. On another note, Appalachian has just received 6 new benches to be located in the Appal Jam and Appaljack Terrain Parks. The benches will allow riders to rest, watch, or adjust their equipment. Each bench is 6 feet long and made of aluminum checkerplate. "These benches appeared first in the parks at Whistler/Blackcomb in British Columbia," said Terrain Park Director Drew Stanley. "We feel that these benches will add to our park scene and continue our tradition of offering the latest features and amenities for our park riders.”

The first ski resort to open on the East Coast this season can now also boast that they are open today with the most terrain that they have ever offered as they are 100% today with 12 slopes and trails, including the Upper and Lower Snowbird Trails. Please Note that both Upper and Lower Snowbird Trails are open for day skiing only. Skiers and Riders ALWAYS like to hear about new terrain to play on. Today you have it!
