Good Morning folks, if you’re reading this you are probably coming to SkiSoutheast.com to find out the most up to date and current snow and weather conditions for the resorts in the Southeast and Mid Atlantic. Our daily updated ski report is the best way to find out how much snow fell at your favorite resort during the last 72 hours and the last three days have been awesome! More than a few counties in our region are still under a blizzard warning, but don’t let that stop you from taking advantage of the fresh powder that has fallen at Beech, Sugar, Snowshoe, Canaan Valley, Timberline, Wisp, and Winterplace.
We’ve got snow and more snow. Some once again impressive totals for these resorts over the past 72 hours and more is expected through Sunday. Roads in the High Country are snowy but passable. Crews are constantly clearing main roads so travelers can get up here. With some sun and fewer snow showers today we should see some cleaner dryer roads as the day continues, at least here in North Carolina. If you’ve got 4 wheel drive or chains and some good common sense you will be fine.
Some notable 24 hour snow totals: Snowshoe – 12 in
Canaan Valley – 12.9 in
Timberline – 12.9 in
Winterplace – 11 in
Wisp – 12 in
Beech Mtn. – 9.9 in
Sugar – 8 in
Canaan Valley and Timberline Resort have received 105.4 inches in the month of February alone. This is amazing! They have consistently had more “12 inch” storms than any other resort in the Southeast and Mid Atlantic. I know the guys and gals at Canaan and Timberline are loving every second of it. Snowshoe Mountain has surpassed the 200 inch mark this week and they are expecting another foot of snow before this storm is over. It seems like every week we get a significant snow event for most resorts we cover.

The 2010 Summit @ Snowshoe
We’ve got 6 days until the 2010 SkiSoutheast.com/Snowshoe Summit. If you haven’t been to Snowshoe yet this season – you need to.
