There are going to be some fantastic conditions awaiting for those who can hit the slopes today.
That is definitely a great way to start a Wednesday.
We are holding steady with six open resorts today, and all were able to refresh the slopes with snowmaking last night.
Here is a quick look at what each resort is offering today.
App Ski Mountain – In Blowing Rock, App is playing on a 24-36″ base with a groomed surface. They are playing on eight slopes with five lifts spinning today. They are open for night skiing, but please remember that online reservations are required.
Beech Mountain – Offering six slopes serviced by four lifts today. They are playing on a groomed surface with a 22-37″ base. It is just day sessions right now for Beech Mountain.

Along with the six open resorts, every other resort in our immediate coverage area was able to make snow over the last 24 hours or so.
That window, unfortunately, will close at some point today with marginal temperatures at night – we could see a couple of resorts refresh the slopes but it will be close.
However, conditions look fantastic for the coming days – especially with some resorts kicking off their season this coming weekend.
That does it for today, but until next time #ThinkSnow!
