A little light snow for some to kick off February.
It is hard to believe that we turned the calendar to February this morning – it seems like last week we were preparing for Thanksgiving resort openings.
Tuesday’s mixed bag of weather brought some light snow accumulation to the northern resorts, and a few of the Virginia resorts were even included in the fun this time.
Perhaps the biggest winners weren’t the resorts with the most snow, but Massanutten Resort received an inch of snow to lead the Virginia resorts in accumulation. Bryce Resort received just over a half inch, while Wintergreen had a heavy dusting.
Nothing major, but it is great to see Ma Nature throw a little winter ambiance at those resorts.
Snowshoe Mountain and Winterplace Ski Resort were the winners as far as accumulations as both received around that 2″ mark of fresh snow.
Canaan and Timberline received just under an inch of snow, while Wisp was also in that neighborhood of around a half inch.
As an added bonus, a handful of resorts were able to resume snowmaking operations to add an extra layer to the refresh.
Unfortunately, the North Carolina resorts and Ober Mountain just received some rain – which was mostly light, and the conditions are staying just outside of being a snowmaking window.
For the full details, be sure to visit the Snow Reports page where you will find updated lift and trail counts, snow conditions, and base along with some other information.
Today’s photo of the day is from Ober Mountain as they just finished hosting the Tennessee Special Olympics.
Such a fantastic event.
Today is looking kind of gray but any precipitation should be on the light side. The southern resorts could see another mixed-bag weather day for Thursday before things turn off cooler.
The weekend is starting to shape up rather nicely.
That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkSnow!
