On-Snow Reports – and more.

Here’s the On-Snow reports for Friday:

Bob Deasel was at Appalachian – "I was out early and the lift lines weren’t too bad til about late morning. The conditions were a lot better than I thought they’s be. Lot of snow, but it was heavy. Some worn, thin areas began to show by mid day and while I’m sure they will groom them away by Saturday AM, more will return with the Holiday traffic. Good skiing though!"

Tammy G. was a Hawksnest – "Crowds were not too bad. There was plenty of snow, but heavy and there were some thin/bare areas starting to show through. I’ll be back on Saturday and Sunday and I’ll update you."

Everett Simpson was at Ski Beech – "The crowds were AMAZING. Up top was pretty good but the bottom was like trying to ski through a maze at times. The snow was in nice shape, but slushy which I guess is to be expected with the warm temperatures. I did see several high traffic thin areas and some bare spots."

David Spence was at Sugar – "If you didn’t mind a long wait in the lift lines Sugar was pretty nice on Friday. I didn’t get in too many runs because of the crowds but the snow was very nice, actually firmer than I thought it would be. There were some thin areas and a few bare spots showing through, particularly where trails meet."

Margaret Steele was at Cataloochee – "Although the crowds took some of the fun out of it, Cataloochee was in pretty good shape. Probably like all of the resorts they will need to make some snow soon because there were thin spots and some bare areas showing by the end of the day, but all in all it was great."
