It’s Still Snowing!

There’s a lot to cover today so be sure to read the full story! First, it’s still snowing, but with gusting winds it’s hard to get a perfect read on how much snow we’ve received. Most areas around the NC ski areas have reported 2" of new snow overnight and we have some scattered reports of 4" around the Tennessee line. Snow is expected to continue with another 1" or so locally and 1" to 2" on mountaintops.

Ski Beech Opens! Ski Beech joined the ranks of resorts that are open today with 5 trails to the top! Others will follow shortly with near perfect snowmaking opportunities for several days in a row ahead.

Remember that you can click on Road Contitions to see what the DOTs say. We have snow cover on all roads but traffic is moving smoothly as of this writing. We’ll update throughout the day as needed.

The weather is COLD and WINDY today with highs expected to stay in the 20s and lows around 14° tonight. If you are planning a ski trip for this weekend, it will be NEAR PERFECT for you. Here’s the latest:

Today – Hi 24 Lo 14 – Mostly Cloudy, Snow, Windy
