Up to 5″ of Natural Snow Fell Making for an Incredible Wednesday

FeaturedFirst Trax

Today’s featured image is from Snowshoe Mountain during yesterday’s snow. Conditions look great all over the region.

The Tuesday snow is making for some incredible conditions for Wednesday.

Up to five inches of natural powder fell in the northern part of the region on top of snowmaking, conditions are looking fantastic – like play hooky from work (if you can) great – for the next couple of days.

Bill Nabors shared this great photo from his Bryce Resort home.

As a nice cherry on top, light snow is still falling this morning at the various resorts.

The totals were impressive for the short time frame that the bulk of the snow fell. Mike did an evening report (maybe we should name that Last Trax?) and showed things off with a video tour. Check that out here.

The big winners of the day were Snowshoe, Canaan Valley, and Wintergreen as they received 5” of natural snow. Let’s take a quick look at the totals from the storm:

Snowshoe – 5”
Wintergreen – 5”
Canaan Valley – 4.8”
Bryce Resort – 4”
Massanutten – 4”
Wisp – 4”
Homestead – 3”
Winterplace – 3”
Beech Mountain – 2”
Sugar Mountain – 2”

For those keeping score, that brings Canaan Valley to a foot of natural snow so far this week and Snowshoe to nine inches in the past three days.

The latest conditions can be found on the Snow Reports page.

I have always thought a picture was worth a thousand words and the resorts were crushing it on social media.

Wintergreen shared these great shots in the height of the storm yesterday.

It’s been snowing hard up here since 9am. We easily have 3 inches already and hoping for 6. Take advantage of our school…

Snowshoe was showing off that Cheat Mountain magic yesterday as conditions were looking primed.

Massanutten shared a snow day video of the natural powder that was falling on the resort.

Bryce Resort looked like a winter playground yesterday in the video that they posted.

It was also a power day at Wisp Resort – check out these conditions.

POWDER DAY!! ⛷🌨🌨🌨🏂 Ski conditions are pristine today at Wisp Resort. With weather calling for an inch an hour until…

Last but certainly not least, Justin Harris was playing out in the snow at Canaan Valley and captured some incredible action shots as the natural stuff fell. Justin seemed stoked in emails this morning and I look forward to seeing what he captures in the Valley today.

Yes, it was that good today! Tomorrow will be even better. #CanaanResort #PowderDay

Speaking of Canaan Valley, be sure to check out our Facebook page as we are giving away a three-day, two-night ski getaway to the beautiful Davis, WV resort. All you have to do to be eligible is to like our Ski Southeast page on Facebook.

Josh Joshwa shared some great photos on Facebook from his adventures at Wintergreen yesterday.

Pretty awesome stuff.

Nearly all of the resorts were also able to make snow overnight as they work to get their bases back up. Snowmaking will continue as long as conditions allow today and resume as soon as possible this evening. A few locales may be able to make snow nonstop today.

It is going to be a tad on the windy side today, but otherwise, it looks like a gorgeous day (can you say bluebird day?) to be on the slopes. If you are lucky enough to be on the slopes today or tomorrow, be sure to send us your photos and videos – we would love to feature you and your friends!

That is it for today but be on the lookout for more content on social media and SkiSoutheast.

Now, wish me luck as I try to convince Mike that I need to go do some on-snow reporting today and tomorrow. That sounds better than playing hooky right?

Until next time, #ThinkSnow!
