On-Snow Southeast Reports –

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!

Denise Reberea was at Snowshoe – What can I sau but I am so glad that I am a regular to SkiSoutheast because I never have been to Snowshoe before but kept seeing the nice photos and decided that I had to see what all the fuss on SkiSoutheast was about. Now I know and I will be back many times in the future. I have never been out west but compared to the places I’ve skied in the southeast before, this place just gives you the feel of a much larger mountain resort destination. The snow was great and I spent a good bit of time around the middle part of the mountain (Ballhooter) because you get up and down so many times in a day. The snow was soft today and it really made for fast conditions. I snowboard and loved the fact that there were as many people boarding the slopes as their were skiers. Everyone here treats you so nice and just like your website has said so many times, people here are always smiling and NOW I KNOW WHY! I’m sold on Snowshoe!

Jonathan Bears was at Winterplace – I was amazed at how nice conditions were today. Winterplace had over 20 slopes open (28 to be exact) and the surface conditions were really really nice. No lift lines, mild temps, plenty of snow, plenty of slopes. What more can you ask for? I’ll be here for a week and I’ll report in again and send some photos!
