The Weather Further North Looking Good

First Trax

Stay up to date by getting notified of new posts!

While resorts in North Carolina, Tenness and Virginia are working feverishly to work around Mother Nature’s borderline temps to make enough snow to get open (or stay open in the case of Sugar and Appalachian)…things are looking UP for Snowshoe Mountain and resorts north. More accurately, things are looking DOWN that is. The temperatures have been borderline lately.

Snowshoe Mountain had made enough snow to open a couple of weeks ago and then mild temps and rain recycled that snow back into Shavers Lake at the bottom of the mountain. They began making snow again on Thanksgiving Day and will make snow as long as temps allow…and that should be MOST of the next week!

Tuesday is the only day that showers are in the forecast and overnight temperatures should be good enough to make snow there Monday night, Wednesday night and then around the clock for the next few days…making it’s planned opening the middle of next week a good one. They will have to dodge a few showers Tuesday and Wednesday but it should be smooth sailing after that!

We can hope that the new weather pattern from then on will be a COLD and SNOWY one! THINK COLD and THINK SNOW!
