The photo of the day is from Appalachian Ski Mountain. They do a nice job with their “corduroy shots” don’t they?

Check the SNOW REPORT for all slopes and resort ops this morning and for today. A quick summary is that all three ski areas open for today are located in North Carolina and all three will offer plenty of nice terrain to play on and for DAY SESSIONS ONLY today.

A Quick Glance Ahead

There was no snowmaking happening around the region on Saturday evening as temps peeked above freezing for the most part across the region. It looks like the next round of snowmaking temps will hit in some areas Monday evening, but for most of the region (including pretty much all of the ski areas) on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.

Until then…enjoy what is out there with with Appalachian, Cataloochee and Sugar open today.



Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia will be the only additional ski area open later in the week, unless there’s a surprise or two with additional snowmaking. Snowshoe simply looks way ready for prime-time.

Lots of snow to move around at Silver Creek as well!

Closing Notes

Thanks to Joe Stevens and the bevy of weather peeps that he collaborated with to provide us with Joe’s official, first post of his Snow News is Good News column for the season.

The forecast looks great across the board for the upcoming season. Check it out.

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

I received numerous responses to our outreach for a FirsTrax News and Snow Reporter. I am working remotely this morning and I will respond to all of you. (A quick glance/count looks like we received input from 14 interested, snow-loving peeps.)

I will be reviewing each of those by Monday and it looks like we have some good entries to choose from…all of which I feel our readers would enjoy reading. I’ll take additional emails today if you’re interested. Check out: Join Our Team

That’s it from yours truly today. I have to cut things short this morning to make it down to the hotel restaurant before they stop serving breakfast!
