A Snowy Latter Portion of the Week is in Store

Is it Hump Day again already?  Geez.  Time is flying by.  We’re halfway through another week, of which the end looks very interesting in terms of winter weather.  It looks like we could finally see some natural snow for portions of the region that aren’t in northern West Virginia and western Maryland.  I’m not going to lie, the thought of getting even a mini pow day in on Saturday is getting me excited right now.  Gah I hope it happens.

The thought of powder was far from my mind yesterday though.  It was 65 degrees down here in Charlotte!  Perfect weather for a run around Davidson.  I wish I could have ridden though, as it looked like a fun day to be on the slopes with warmer temps and blue skies.  Wintergreen posted a pic on their Facebook page that exemplifies this.

A little bit of snow is in the forecast for Wintergreen and the other Virginia resorts today actually.  When I say little, I mean little.  But, snow is snow.

It also looked like a fun day out at Appalachian Ski Mountain.  Check out this little Instagram edit from ATP.

Sunny days are nice and all.  But let’s get to talking about the snow.  The rest of the week looks GOOD up in West Virginia.  Check out the 7 day forecast from the NWS for Snowshoe.  Yewwww!

Just Beautiful.

Now that is more like it.  That’s just a beautiful sight for sore eyes right there.  The North Carolina resorts look to join in on the action Friday and Saturday.  We won’t get as much as up north, but the potential is there for a decent amount in the higher elevations up around Sugar and Beech.  The NWS in Blacksburg tweeted out some projections this morning.  See for yourself.

This could be a very good week for the West Virginia and North Carolina ski resorts and even the Virginia ones.  I have a feeling those totals at Sugar and Beech will be higher than what’s projected in that image.  The NWS always underdoes snow totals at those locations.

It’s going to be a fun rest of the week!  Heck, things look promising going into next week as well.  Cross your fingers!

Until tomorrow…

In addition to his Appnet duties, he helps with day to day operations of Ski Southeast and is also in charge of our sister site, ResortCams.com. In his own words... "I discovered this website a few years back and visit it on a daily basis. I lurked on the messageboard for a while before becoming actively involved and have met some very cool people because of it. Needless to say, I am VERY stoked to be a part of the team and I think I have a unique insight into what people want from the site seeing as I used to be on the outside looking in. I'm sure some people who are reading this have seen me on the mountain before. I am frequently at Beech Mountain and it’s not hard to spot me, as I usually have a camera on my head. I love to document my days on snow and have posted some videos on the messageboard before. If you ever see me out there, feel free to say hey!" You can email Kenny directly at [email protected]
