It is a colder start to the week.
March has continued to deliver the last few days as colder air and some natural snow to go along with it.
The conditions are looking pretty fantastic this morning as resorts were able to take advantage of some snowmaking windows over the weekend.
It does look like snowmaking was limited to the northern resorts overnight – and even a couple of those were limited.
However, we are seeing a dusting of snow to help set the ambiance at a few of the southern resorts, while Snowshoe, Wisp, and Timberline have received in the two-inch range with some snow still falling.
Not a bad start to the week.
For the full list of conditions, be sure to visit the Snow Reports page.
Here is a quick look at who is open for play today.
App Ski Mountain – App is playing on seven trails this morning with five lifts spinning. They are reporting groomed conditions atop a 20-30″ base.

It looks like Bryce Resort has paused winter operations until later in the week (thanks for the heads-up, Bill), while Massanutten is still hoping to crank up operations later this week.
We will bring you updates as we get those.
Ma Nature looks like she will continue to play ball with the resorts with some natural snow.
