Skier’s Delight…29″ at Snowshoe!

snowshoe-mtn-18nov08
The outbreak of cold air enveloping the mid Atlantic and northeastern United States this week is turning into something skiers can be truly grateful for as we head for the Thanksgiving holiday. Reports out of far western Maryland and West Virginia indicate 6-12″ of snow has fallen at elevations above 2,000′ and 12-24″ of snow has been reported up above 3,000′. At Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County, West Virginia, where the summit of the mountain reaches 4,848 feet, an incredible 29″ of snow has been measured as of late this afternoon. That brings their seasonal total to 38.5″! with the fresh powder on the slopes the ski resorts are planning on opening early.  Check the individual resort web sites for updated snow reports and opening day headlines, but as of this afternoon Snowshoe Mountain is scheduled to open this Friday, November 21st.  Wisp Resort is planning on opening Friday, November 28th.
