Natural snow is “white gold” to mountain ski resorts, and 4.2″ of beautiful snow fell at Canaan Valley Resort and Timberline Resort in West Virginia on Friday! As the screen capture from ResortCams.com from this morning shows, a surprise burst of natural snowfall fell at the highest elevations of the West Virginia mountains.
According to the “Davis 3SE” National Weather Service reporting station, located 3 miles southeast of the town of Davis, W.V. (hence the name), 4.2″ of snow fell on Friday, after a TRACE of snow was reported the morning before. Temperatures hovered at around 32° to 35° for much of the day on Friday and with the moisture in place, that created SNOW!
Snowshoe Mountain also got in on the snow accumulation with about 2″ being reported atop the 4848′ elevations, although the official NWS station at 4765′ reported an official 1″ snowfall total. That puts Snowshoe up to 5-6″ of snow on the “pre-season” and Canaan Valley and TImberline Mountain are at 7.4″.
