Check the ski report for all the details. I’m headed out of town for a soccer match. (Yea, I know.) Anyway, suffice to say that things will be MUCH improved for today with lots of snowmaking EVERYWHERE!!! (Okay there was ONE ski area that didn’t make snow last night. We’ll let you guys look around.)

The BIG news is that SNOW fell across West Virginia and Maryland – dropping 2" on the northern tier of our coverage area. COLD invaded the area and that is the other BIG news as temps this morning are 36° colder in some areas this morning compared to Friday morning. that was the case at Ober Gatlinburg. It was some 25-35° most everywhere.

CHECK OUT THESE TWO NEW CAMS that went LIVE on Friday and we’ll be announcing MORE in the next couple of days.
