Today’s featured photo is from Jason Vioral who shared this photo from his opening day adventures at App Ski Mountain.
What a beautiful November weekend we had this weekend.
I think Ma Nature is recovering a bit as it is a gloomy morning, but we will take a gloomy Monday for a beautiful weekend.
Four resorts – App Ski Mountain, Bryce, Cataloochee, and Sugar Mountain – played hard this weekend, and we have more set to join the fun later this week.
This morning, we are back to three open resorts as Bryce is planning on opening on Saturday and Sundays for the rest of November – with the addition of Black Friday.
The resorts operating today are:
Appalachian Ski Mountain – Almost identical conditions as yesterday as they are playing on a 30-40” base with eight slopes and three lifts open. Appal Jack and Appal Jam are also open.
Cataloochee – Five slopes open with two lifts on a groomed service. There have a 24-40” base.
Sugar Mountain – Open for both day and night sessions with a 20-34” base. They have seven slopes and three lifts operating.
Across the region, conditions aren’t allowing for snowmaking this morning. Temps will be borderline for snowmaking at night this week, but certainly isn’t out of the question, and there is a slight chance (20%) of snow (as well as some rain) tomorrow and tomorrow night.
There were a ton of great social media content shared from the resorts this weekend.
This video from Bryce showed the scene from their opening weekend where both winter sport and mountain biking were open for operation.
Bike or skis/board? What will you do tomorrow? Today was a great first day!…#bryceresort #brycebikepark #brycelife #loveva #myblueridge #ski #snowboard #corduroy #snow #mtblife #mtnlife #winter

App Ski Mountain showed off the sweet early season conditions on Saturday with a drone video.
Cataloochee had great conditions when they reopened on Saturday. Check out this shot from over the weekend.
We love a good bluebird day at Cataloochee! The sun is out and there’s plenty of snow on the ground. Who’s on the mountain this weekend?DM us your trip photos for a chance to be featured on our page!
