It is going to be a bit of a wet day for the second day of the season.
We have a bit of a blah for Tuesday as some light undeveloped snow will be moving through. Temperatures are going to hoover right around freezing so we could see that rain mixed with freezing rain, sleet, and even perhaps some light snow.
Just an overall gray kind of day.
As a result of the forecast, Cataloochee has suspended operations for the day but will resume tomorrow morning.
Sugar Mountain is still playing today if you would like to make some very early season turns.
They are playing on six trails with two lifts spinning, and they are reporting an 8-22″ base.
Snow conditions at the Banner Elk resort are wet and frozen granular.
Snow day rates are in effect for Avery County (N.C.) students and staff as the system is closed due to the freezing rain.
It is never a bad day to make laps.
A few resorts had to pause snowmaking operations yesterday and again this morning, but a couple have been able to keep things going.
Check out this picture from the new Skidder Slope camera at Snowshoe.
Looking pretty sweet.
Today’s featured image is from Snowshoe last week.
Snowmaking conditions return this evening, and this week looks like it has some pretty solid snowmaking windows to set the stage really nicely for opening days (as well as refreshing Sugar and Cataloochee’s slopes).
It still amazes me how fast things cranked up this season (this is a great time to #Thankasnowmaker).
That does it for today, but until tomorrow, #ThinkSnow!
