It’s SNOWING HARD at Snowshoe’s Silver Creek this morning! Check out the LIVE WEBCAMS
Nothing gets my juices flowing like SNOW and good gracious have we had it lately. After 4-5″ of snow earlier in the week, we saw another 7″ or so of snow on Thursday morning here in the High Country of Boone, Banner Elk and Beech Mountain. As I am sitting here updating the Friday morning report it is snowing rather moderately. I’m also seeing reports of snowfall across the entire Southeast and mid-Atlantic. Snowshoe is reporting ANOTHER 2″ of new snow!
Meteorologist Brad Panovich has updated the latest skier’s forecast. Check that out.
I am amped up and ready to head to Snowshoe, West Virginia today to begin the annual SkiSoutheast Summit. Kenny Griffin is already AT Snowshoe this morning and he texted me last night that he had never seen as much snow as there was pushed all around the top of Snowshoe last night. It has been an EPIC run of natural snow of late and that should make for an awesome Summit Weekend.
Snowshoe saw another 2″ of snow overnight taking them to 31″ of snow in the last 7 days and I noticed this morning that they are 100% open today with all 60 trails. THAT will make for some awesome turns.
For the 100 or so of you fellow SkiSoutheast-ers who are headed up, Rusted Root’s concert begins at 9pm tonight in the Connection. Be sure to pick up your FREE concert tickets in THE DEPOT.
It’s not too late to join in on the fun of hanging out, skiing and riding with a bunch of fellow, snow-loving friends. Call Snowshoe Lodging today, mention SkiSoutheast and you’ll get a 20% discount off all on mountain lodging and you can also get a two day lift pass discounted AND free concert tickets for tonight’s concert.
Also if you’re on the mountain with us this weekend, Snowshoe’s Marketing Director, David Dekema will be giving us a tour of the new, boutique hotel, The Corduroy Inn on Saturday evening.
I’ll be heading in the direction in just a bit and I plan on skiing at Silvercreek this evening so come and look us up and join in on the fun of riding with friends – old and new.
Also if you’re AT Snowshoe Saturday morning – meet us at the top of Ball Hooter for some turns together at 8:45am or so. We’ll make some turns, get some photos and videos and enjoy the day.
I heard from John Cossaboom, the popular Winter Sports Director at Ober Gatlinburg this morning where it’s snowing lightly this morning.
