12 Days to Go Until the 1st Annual SkiSoutheast.com Summit! We have some 50+ people planning to attend thus far. Meteorologist Brad Panovich just emailed us that he’ll be there as well! If you haven’t made plans to attend, it promises to be a great time. We’ll make plans to meet up on Saturday morning, do some quick group photos and video, and then go take over Snowshoe Mountain! It will be kind of cool to see a lot of us fire down that mountain wearing the new SkiSoutheast.com hoodies! We’ve got a ton of stickers and the new hoodies to giveaway and whatever we have left over of the SkiNC Hoodies will be given away as well! If you haven’t made plans…do so today!
The First Annual SkiSoutheast.com Summit is March 7th, 8th and 9th at Snowshoe Mountain. Click here to Join Us for All of the Fun of Spring Break and/or the SkiSoutheast.com Summit Weekend!

Tuesday evening gets COLD with lows around 16° and then 3-6" of snow is in the forecast for Wednesday. Thursday and Friday looks sunny with highs in the 30s and 40s and lows allowing for snowmaking Tuesday night, all day Wednesday and Thursday and Thursday night.
