A Mild, Bluebird Tuesday

First Trax

Another bluebird day is on tap across the region today.

After a beautiful Monday, Tuesday is shaping up to be another really nice day – albeit a bit on the warm side.

Unfortunately, no one was able to make snow as the temperatures didn’t get cool enough, but there are a few windows still this week.

On the bright side, conditions are still great for this time of year. However, the weather is going to be milder until next week when winter returns with cold and some natural snow.

Our own Brad Panovich posted his updated Skier’s Forecast last night and it certainly has some welcomed news for us.

Check out his forecast:

There are five resorts open for today.

App Ski Mountain – They have a 24-32” base with a soft granular surface with eight slopes and four lifts open. They are open for both day and night skiing.

Beech Mountain – Open for day session with a 10-26” base featuring a groomed surface. They are playing on five slopes with three lifts open.

Cataloochee – They have an 18-35” base with a groomed surface. Five slopes and three lifts open for day session only.

Snowshoe – Playing on a 55” base with a groomed surface. They have 11 slopes and three lifts open.

Sugar Mountain – Open for both day and night sessions with an 18-33” loose granular and frozen granular. They are playing on seven slopes with three lifts open.

As we mentioned yesterday, Bryce Resort and Massanutten are slated to reopen on Friday for skiing and snowboarding.

Conditions are looking pretty nice considering we are just now in Thanksgiving week. It is amazing how fast time flies.


Powder Shack Team Rider Goes to Finland
Melanie from the Powder Shack near Massanutten – a great partner of Ski Southeast – sent this cool update regarding one of their Powder Shack Team Riders, Nicholas Pierce, who was invited by The Gould Academy to participate in a training camp in Finland – along with several Olympic Athletes.

How cool is that?

Pierce and his family flew to Finland on Nov. 21 and will return Dec. 5.

Ober Gatlinburg Time Lapse
The Back In Blue Rail Jam looked awesome on Friday night. Check out this really cool time-lapse of the event from the Resortcam at Ober Gatlinburg.

Ober transformed the tubing park into a terrain park for the event and then converted it to tubing runs by Saturday morning. Awesome work from their Mountain Ops guys.

Until next time, #THINKSNOW (and #THINKCOLD for good measure)!
