After the holidays and with the recent unseasonably warm, wet weather, it’s good to take stock of of things. Let’s go on a visual tour of the 11 resorts that are open today.
Might get JUST below freezing tonight in VA:
Bryce: still claiming a 40″ base. A little thin toward the edges, browning in the middle, but not bad.
Massanutten: 20″ base. From Massanutten . . . “Chance of a few hours of marginal snowmaking tonight, the snowmakers will be on standby to take advantage of any opportunity that arises.
Wintergreen: 24″+. From Wintergreen (Mountain Message Blog), “We didn’t lose any terrain overnight and we’ll open with 10 slopes.”
NC resorts that are open are maintaining decent base depths:
Appalachian Ski Mountain: 35 – 63″ base. 9 trails (including 2 terrain parks) and 5 lifts.
Beech Mountain: 34 – 48″ base. 6 trails (terrain park closed) and 4 lifts.
Cataloochee: 37-67″ base. 10 trails and 5 lifts.
mid-to-upper WV is experiencing freezing temps
Canaan Valley: 18-24″ base. Trails are still in a ‘fairly healthy’ state. Temps have dropped throughout the early am.
Snowshoe: 36″ base. 47 trails alive and well. Temps are currently below freezing at ‘Shoe.
Winterplace: 14-34″ base. 8 trails . . . has seen better days.
Wisp is holding pretty steady
Wisp: 14″ base . . . Don’t let the number fool you. There is still B+ coverage at Wisp.
The outlook is not great for Ober
Ober: 10-12″ base . . . About the minimum that is skiiable. Hike-up or ride the carpet. Tubing is still a big hit at Ober though . . . Sold out until Jan. 7th.
Wolf, Timberline, Homestead, Oglebay, are all awaiting colder weather. Sapphire is closed today as planned.
That’s all for today.
