Mild And Rainy Tuesday On The Way

The next couple of days is going to have that blah feeling.

Milder weather will continue to keep feeling like spring, while we will be dealing with some underdeveloped snow over Tuesday and Wednesday.

Cold air, however, will be right behind.

There is never a bad time on the slopes, and today doesn’t look like a complete washout as you will be dealing with showers more than persistent rain. With some soft and playful snow, today wouldn’t be a bad day to get your best rain gear and make some turns.

If you do hit the slopes today, today will be a weather-aware day as some locations could deal with a thunderstorm or two as we could see temps in the upper 60s.

Crazy weather, but it will turn.

The skiing the past couple of weeks really has been fantastic and continues to be pretty fun. Bill Nabers sent over today’s photo of the day from Bryce Resort on Monday and mentioned that the skiing stayed good all day and that people were having so much fun they didn’t want to stop.

We love to hear that.

As I mentioned in First Trax yesterday, I was curious to see how the “observed” New Years’ holiday would affect traffic, and it looked like most resorts had a pretty busy Monday.

It wasn’t the crowds of last week, but on some of the cameras, it looked like a few resorts weren’t too far away from reaching that level.

For today, be sure to visit the Snow Reports page for the full details. Here are a few quick notes from around the area.

  • Now that the holidays are done, Silvercreek at Snowshoe will open at Noon Monday through Thursday.
  • Omni Homestead is set to reopen on Thursday as part of their normally scheduled hours, while Ski Sapphire Valley will resume operations on Friday at noon.
  • Sugar Mountain is offering free guided snowshoe tours today in celebration of Winter Trails Day. For more information, inquire at the Snowsports School.
  • Beech Mountain is set to hold its first Ladies Night of the season on Thursday, Jan. 5. Every Thursday, Beech will offer $15 slope tickets for night session from 5p to 9p.
  • Massanutten is currently running a college student special Monday through Friday this week and next. You can purchase online or at the ticket window.
  • Speaking of the ‘Nut, they are not offering night skiing Tuesday-Thursday for the rest of the season.

That does it for today, but until next time, #ThinkSnow!
