On-Snow Reports for Wednesday –

A Special THANKS to our Ski Patrollers! – These guys pretty much go unnoticed around the slopes until someone gets hurt or is in need. These guys and gals are in constant training to provide us with the best of assistance and medical emergency care when and if that time arises. Today’s Photo of the Day (show up top) was taken on Sunday on Upper Omigosh at Cataloochee. The patrollers were training for their Senior Emergency Management evaluation. From left to right is Constance Lebron, Scott Krein, Bill Dingle and Michael Steinberg. The patient is Lynn McCarragher.

Kevin Dreher was at Ski Beech – When SkiNC.com said it would be the best skiing of the season so far…THEY WERE NOT KIDDING! What a great night on Beech! Mostly clear skies, hardly anyone on the slopes, and soft snow. There were a few spots beginning to show, but the snow crews have piles of snow ready to patch them up until the next cold snap (which comes Wednesday night). If you can, GET UP THERE TODAY!!!

Herb Walker was at Hawksnest – You guys (SkiNC) have been telling readers to check out Hawksnest and I read one of the on-snow reporters saying that this place was a hidden gem. That was exactly what I found today. Hawksnest is one great little ski mountain, with VERY challenging terrain up top and glide-type runs at the bottom. The snow was the best I have skied on this season and there were no lift lines anywhere!
