We are getting closer to the return of the cold and even some snow.
There are only so many ways you can say it is going to rain, but not be a washout – and I feel like I have used every one of those this week.
It has just been one of those weeks.
The forecast for Friday is a little better, but we may have to deal with some pesky showers later today, especially in the North Carolina mountains.
The forecast, however, looks a lot more promising for next weekend. Brad dropped by with his latest skier’s forecast.
While we are still a ways away, we will be keeping our eye on the end of next week.
That being said, there is still a lot of fun to be had on the slopes.
Snowshoe probably described it best as you can expect some soft, wet snow conditions on the slopes, but that will make for some fun early-season turns.
It was great to hear from Bill Nabers who was at Bryce on Thursday. I loved Bill’s report on what he saw Thursday:
“The “white ribbons” are a little narrower, the base depths not as deep, and the scenery not quite like a Christmas card. Okay, but you only ski on the top part of the snow. No matter the location. Skiing was fun at Bryce today, but not many came out. Why not get out and enjoy the slopes? There is fun to be had on the slopes in the southeast!”
Today’s featured image is from Bill’s adventures at Bryce.
Overall, some slopes have narrowed a bit, but there is plenty of snow coverage as we head into the weekend.
For the full report, be sure to visit the Snow Reports page. Here are some notes from around the area:
- Timberline is set to resume operations this morning to bring our open resort tally to eight for today.
- Wolf Ridge was hoping to resume operations today, but Ma Nature and the rain won out. The Wolf hopes to resume operations as soon as conditions allow.
- Winterplace Resort is set to kick off the season on Saturday and Sunday with special bonus days. The season for the West Virginia Resort will begin seven days a week on Friday, Dec. 16.
- Beech Mountain will begin night sessions tonight.
That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkSnow!
