Bluebird Monday to kick off Thanksgiving week

First Trax

After a mixed bag weekend, it is an absolutely gorgeous morning across the region.

The weekend had a little bit of everything – rain, fog, wind, and a little snow. Resorts were able to get the snow guns cranked back up Saturday night and even a little bit last night to refresh the slopes as we head into the first holiday weekend of the 2019-20 season.

Once the fog cleared yesterday, it was simply amazing with the snow and frost laying on the mountains.

Check out these shots Mike captured from Resortcams (Today’s featured photo is from Beech Mountain yesterday).

Beech Mountain was simply breathtaking at sunset last night.The view from our Eagles Nest camera was beautiful.

This morning fits the same motif as it is a bluebird kind of day.

There are five resorts open for play today and conditions look pretty solid all things considered. It’s amazing what even a small window of snowmaking can do.

App Ski Mountain posted this to Facebook this morning to try and tempt us to take a day off. It nearly worked.

App Ski Mountain – playing on eight slopes with four lifts with a 24-32” base.

Beech Mountain – Riding on five slopes with three lifts on a 10-26” base. Open for Day Sessions Only.

Cataloochee – Open for day session with an 18-35” base with five slops and three lifts open. They will have holiday weekend hours starting on Thursday.

Snowshoe – They still have tons of snow on Cheat Mountain. Playing today on 11 slopes with three lifts open featuring a 55” base.

Sugar Mountain – Open for day and night session with seven slopes and three lifts. They are playing on an 18-33” base.

Bryce Resort and Massanutten are closed the first part of the week but are planning on reopening on Black Friday.

As we head into the holiday week, there is a chance of some underdeveloped snow on Wednesday, but it looks like we are going to miss the bulk of the heavy rain on Thanksgiving-eve.

Something to keep an eye on is if we can get some snowmaking conditions in the nighttime hours.

Next week does look a lot colder so #ThinkCold.

Either way, there is still plenty of snow to play on this weekend and weekend.

Until then, #ThinkSnow!
