A Laid-Back St. Patrick’s day

FeaturedFirst TraxNews

It is going to be a chill kind of day.

I thought Snowshoe said it best this morning by describing it as another laid-back Spring day of skiing.

That really hits the nail on the head when you are talking about what it is like visiting the resorts this time of year.

Thursday is going to be laid back everywhere even if it is St. Patrick’s Day. This is your reminder to wear green.

It will be a grayish day – a few resorts will have some light pesky rain showers moving through, but it won’t be anything close to a washout.

The weekend is looking pretty solid as we will deal with some underdeveloped snow on Friday afternoon and maybe into Saturday morning.

However, we are watching late Saturday night into Sunday morning for the potential of some light snow showers.It won’t be anything to write home about, but it would be a nice little treat.

For today, you will find spring conditions with some soft creamy snow. Coverage is holding up really well despite this week’s warm temps, and the mountain operation crews are doing an awesome job taking care of the slopes.

While coverage is holding up very well, there still may be some thin spots so be on the lookout for those.

For the latest conditions, be sure to visit the Snow Reports page for all those deets.

Kenny Hess shared a really cool photo of the new trail that they have been working on that I mentioned earlier in the week. The Massanutten crew has been working on Mueller’s Mile for the last six weeks and will have it open next season.

It looks awesome.

Massanutten has some really cool plans for the next few years, and I am looking forward to seeing them come to fruition.

Finally, today’s featured image is from Cataloochee Ski Area. As a quick update from the closing dates I mentioned yesterday, Cataloochee is still aiming for the last Sunday in March – weather permitting.

That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkSnow!
