Snowmaking Ops for the Upcoming Week Look Borderline

There won’t be many opportunities for the ski areas around North Carolina to make snow for the next several days as overnight lows will be just above snowmaking range until MAYBE Tuesday night and then again Thursday night. Friday night looks good so maybe the ski areas can squeeze out some snowmaking this week and then crank up the snowguns in earnest over next weekend.
