We were so close to having a refreshing start to the week.

Snowshoe and Timberline were able to resume snowmaking operations overnight to provide a refresh of the slopes. However, the other open resorts saw the snowmaking window never open.

It was certainly going to be a slim window for most of the area, but we were hoping at least a few more could take advantage.

Such a slim margin sometimes can make all the difference.

The two West Virginia resorts that have lifts spinning were certainly the big winners.

As a note, Snowshoe noted that they would be working on expanding terrain ahead of the holidays, but that there may be some snowmaking on open terrain today as well.

In addition to Snowshoe and Timberline, App Ski Mountain, Beech Mountain, Bryce Resort, Cataloochee, Sugar Mountain, and Wisp Resort are all open for play today.

You can view the full details on the Snow Reports page.

Here are a couple of notables this morning:

  • Winterplace has suspended operations as scheduled for tonight. The resort hosted bonus days on Saturday and Sunday and is set to officially drop the rope on Friday, Dec. 16.
  • In addition to Cataloochee, Beech Mountain has also added a night skiing session starting this past weekend. App Ski and Sugar are also offering the chance to make turns at night.
  • As mentioned, Snowshoe is making a push to expand open terrain. The resort is set to open Silver Creek as well as tubing on Friday night.
  • I saw Wintergreen having a couple of pieces of snowmaking equipment on this morning which was great to see.
  • If you are making turns today, there may be some thin areas – especially at the southern resorts.

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