A Little Rain On Our Wednesday Parade

FeaturedFirst TraxNews

Some underdeveloped snow is on the agenda for Wednesday.

Spring is here as we have some soft creamy snow on the slopes. After an incredible weekend and two really nice days, we were due for a blah day and that is what Wednesday will be for the most part.

The North Carolina resorts along with Massanutten will see rain move in earlier in the day, while Snowshoe and Wisp will see it mostly be a late evening and overnight event.

Amounts look to be on the light side (especially for the northern resorts) for the most part so it looks like it may be just a nuisance rain.

As I have talked really since the middle of February, there is still plenty of snow to play on at the remaining open resorts. Conditions are still really good for this time of year as coverage is really solid.

For the latest details, be sure to hop over to the Snow Reports page to get the latest.

Besides the temperatures, there were minor tweaks as far as open trails (Wisp added three trails to the mix today) and base (an inch or two here or there – nothing crazy).

We are entering the home stretch of the season, and we are getting a better idea of when the season will come to a close.

App Ski Mountain (which is where today’s featured image is from) has announced that they are planning on closing for the season on Sunday, March 20 at 5p, Beech Mountain is planning on making Saturday, March 26 their final day of the 2021-22 campaign.

Cataloochee is looking at the last Sunday in March as their final day with weather permitting I did notice that they are allowing online reservations through Sunday, March 20 currently, but they haven’t announced an official closing day as of this morning.

It is the final week at Massanutten as they will wrap up their 50th season this Saturday (March 20).

Snowshoe is looking at Sunday, March 27 as their final day of the winter season.

Two resorts – Sugar Mountain and Wisp Resort – have not announced an official closing date.

Wisp did shift their hours to 9a-5p daily starting today, and they have lift hours scheduled through March 27 on the activities guide (which is as far as the available hours go right now).

These closing dates are weather permitting as we navigate the roller coaster weather ride.

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