SNOWSHOE SET TO OPEN FOR SKIING & SNOWBOARDING
DAILY STARTING WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 21ST
Two and a half feet of Snow and Cold Temps Drive Early Open
SNOWSHOE, West Virginia – (November 15, 2012) – Snowshoe Mountain Resort (www.snowshoemtn.com), the #1 ski area in the Southeast, today announced it will officially open for the 2012-13 winter ski and snowboard season on Wednesday, November 21st, matching the resort’s earliest opening day in the last 15 years. Snowshoe officials credit over two feet of natural snow and excellent snowmaking conditions for the great early opportunity.
“If there could be a silver lining to the huge storm that impacted so many people in our region at the start of the month, it’s that our mountains, which experienced a warmer, shorter than normal winter last year, received over two feet of heavy snow with which to open our businesses and invite guests to our region,” said Frank DeBerry, President and COO of Snowshoe. “With cooperating cold temperatures we’re able to build a snow base and start spinning the lifts in time for a much needed Thanksgiving holiday weekend for many.”
