Mid-week weather is ‘Money’ this week

First TraxGeneral

Well, we didn’t see any snow last night, but we did see temps get down below freezing at 2 (of 3) open resorts. Snowshoe got down to 27F, but couldn’t quite groom a couple of their runs because of the sog. Wisp hit 26F this morning and was able to groom all but ‘The Face’. Cataloochee was a touch above freezing at 37F, but showing groomed runs throughout.

This afternoon looks ideal though, so it might actually be better to get last chair vs. first chair today.

Tonight, all locations get below freezing with warm sun in the afternoon. This should make tomorrow a pick day of the mid-week. I plan to get out there tomorrow for my last mid-week day of the season! See you on the slopes

3 resorts open today!

  • Snowshoe Mountain:
    • “We may have some lingering clouds and fog this morning but expect that to move out, making way for a really nice afternoon with blue skies, sunshine and temperatures in the 40’s.”
    • 37 (of 42) groomed . . . “It was a bit on the wet side last night so our groomers stayed off most of the steep terrain (black diamonds and some blues).”
    • “The forecast looks great for the next several days so get up here and enjoy some excellent spring skiing.”
