Today’s featured photo is from Justin Harris of Canaan Valley.
It’s a location, location, location kind of day.
Depending on where you are in the coverage area, Ma Nature is going to bring some sweet conditions to the slopes today.
After this weekend’s snow and cold, the northern part of the coverage area is going to have another powder day – especially the West Virginia and Maryland resorts with up to 6” of natural powder forecasted to fall by the time things are said and done tonight.
How nice has the last couple of days been? Canaan Valley posted on the morning report that this week’s natural snowfall should be reaching approaching one foot by tomorrow.
The Virginia resorts may even get in on the action today as they were left out of the natural snow over the weekend. Forecasts are calling for 1-3” at the four Virginia resorts and it has already started as of 8 am this morning.
The snow/rain line this morning, however, is keeping the North Carolina resorts as well as Ober Gatlinburg out of the moderate snow. Light snow fell overnight at the High Country trio of App Ski Mountain, Beech Mountain, and Sugar Mountain but certainly not the totals we were hoping for.
This morning, there is currently a wintry mix falling depending on your exact location. There is a chance that the snow could pick up later today, so fingers crossed.
For the latest conditions, be sure to check out the Snow Report.

With some natural snow and a strong snowmaking window, conditions will be pretty impressive over the next couple of days.
