Snowmaking and Light Snow on Tap

Today’s featured image is from App Ski Mountain – check out that bird’s eye view.

It has been a great week on the slopes and that continues today.

Conditions are looking fantastic this morning across the region, and conditions could be even sweeter tomorrow.

Canaan Valley saw a little bit of snow overnight, and it looks like some flakes are still flying this morning around the northern resorts.

There is a potential for some more light snow across the region tonight into tomorrow, and then all eyes are looking at the weekend.

The keyword for tonight is light.

Several resorts were able to make snow overnight and into the morning, and it looks like others will be able to join the fray tonight. All the cold, light snow and snowmaking have combined for stellar conditions.

For the full deets on the latest, be sure to hop over to the Snow Reports page.
