It may not feel like winter this morning, but that will be changing as the day goes on.
This morning certainly has a blah feel, but that will go away later today as the rain clears out and cold air will return.
The return of the cold air will allow snowmakers to provide a quick refresh of the slopes and even some light Northwest Flow snow tonight.
Perfect ingredients to make for an incredible weekend on the slopes.
Our own Brad Panovich shared his latest Skier’s Forecast overnight, and it was certainly good news.
The cold air is on the doorstep this morning as the western resorts like Ober Gatlinburg have already started cooling down.
As Brad mentioned, we have seen the base depths take a bit of a hit – especially considering a few of the resorts have seen some pretty heavy rain – but none were anything too drastic.
For the latest details, be sure to hop over to the Snow Reports page.
Even though it will be soggy, it will still be a great day to ski and ride if you are able. Here are a couple of notable items as we head into the weekend.
- Snowshoe has opened Mountaineer and Timberjack as intermediate ski trails without park features, and the ‘Shoe remains open at 100%.
- For Saturday, Feb. 5, Snowshoe has reached capacity but will have a few Silver Creek-only tickets available.
- We expect it to be a busy weekend across the board and have seen a couple of resorts – Massanutten in particular – post they are expecting to hit capacity. Be sure to plan ahead if you are able.
- Canaan Valley has Prosperity and Lower Prosperity open for uphill skiing only at the moment, while Timberline is keeping Off The Wall and the Drop ungroomed with some snowmaking whales to play on.
It is going to be an awesome weekend to get out and play, and hopefully, you are able to take advantage.
A few posts to help get us ready for the weekend.
That does it for today, until next time, #ThinkSnow!
