Danni Toms reports from Sugar on Tuesday:
I skied at Sugar yesterday so I could have qualified as that elusive ski bunny guys! Sorry no photos! The conditions were pretty bad in some areas and pretty good in others. I know it is getting cold tonight and conditions will improve a lot so I’ll report again after tomorrow.
Sam Brothers reports from Wisp Resort:
After reading more and more about Wisp on your website, my family decided to check it out. This place is a little bit of a drive coming from Raliegh but worth the extra hour or so past Snowshoe. I am impressed with the snow quality here today. We got in yesterday and things have fluctuated from cold to soft and now we are to get tons of snow tonight! The terrain here is really quite nice with something for everyone. I ate at Sante Fe’s Restaurant and a place called DC’s in the resort itself and both were very nice. I will send some photos as soon as I can. I highly recommend Wisp to all SkiNC and SkiSoutheast viewers!
Samantha Williams reports from Wintergreen:
I have been a viewer of SkiNC for a while and only been checking out SkiSoutheast for the last two seasons, but great job to your team. I have had a lot of fun reading about the elusive ski bunny. I think the Southeast has the BEST looking ski bunnies. Of course I’m prejudiced! I skied at Wintergreen today and I’d have to say that the snow is still holding up okay. They need some snow or cold pretty soon but I understand that is happening tonight. Good thing! Keep up the great work!
SkiSoutheast Note: We’ve posted some photos that reporters and viewers have sent which basically says that there are PLENTY of ski bunnies around the Southeast. You just have to keep your eyes open! Have fun!
