Holding Steady for Now

It’s another one of those hohum days. Gloomy, wet, just blegh. I’m not too bummed though because after today things will turn cold once again. Snowmaking temps return during the overnight hours for the next several days and daytime temps will stay on the cool side as well. Today is just a little hiccup.

Nothing has really changed since yesterday in terms of the resorts. All of the same trails are open as are all of the same resorts. Hence the title of this post.  That’s not a bad thing.  Around a third of the available trails in the region are open right now.  Not too shabby for pre-Christmas.

Snow This Weekend?

I’m not going to go into too much detail about the possibility of snow at the ski areas this weekend due to it being several days out still. I’m sure a lot of you have seen stuff on social media about it. Last night’s model runs backed off the idea of a major storm considerably, so all the weather geeks are waiting for the midday runs to see if that was just a fluke. It looks like some snow for the resorts is likely, but just how much is the million dollar question. I’m still holding out hope for a pow day somewhere on Sunday. I want it!  I’ll keep you guys updated all week.  Follow Brad Panovich on Twitter too.  I’m sure he’ll be posting about it all week as well.

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]
