Happy Friday! Alright folks, we’ve just received another Snow Forecast from our main man Brad Panovich down in Charlotte. Let’s get to it. Calling the next few days a "roller coaster weekend, "he’s forcasting some major dumpage for our area and even more serious snow for up around the West Virginia ski areas. He was spot on with the last storm’s predictions, so my guess is that we can bet he’s going to be right on the money with this one, too!

Sunday may start out with a little bit of rain and ice, but moving in to late Sunday night, the snow arrives. By Monday night the North Carolina could see as much as 8 to 10 more inches, and here’s the kicker, up around West Virginia, Maryland and even the western part of Virginia could see as much as TWENTY, thats right, 20 more inches of snow! Monday will be cold, with wind chills dipping down below zero. Looks like we’re in for another doozy this weekend!!!!

                                      CHECK IT OUT>>>>>>

Appalachian Ski Mountain -23°- Open today with 8 of 12 slopes and packed powder. With all of the recent snowmaking, Appalachian should have some pretty fun terrain features beginning to open up. Check back for more updates! Remember Appalachian has debuted the "flex ticket" this season, so you’re looking at 8 hours of fun from time of purchase!

Beech Mountain Ski Resort -25°- Opens up for night skiing this Saturday. More terrain being added daily! Snowmaking continues, conditions should be excellent!

Cataloochee -28°- 70 percent of the mountain is wide open! 11 of 16 trails, one aerial lift, and one conveyor lift operating, Some terrain features available!
