Holiday visitors to West Virginia ski slopes this year are finding incredible conditions right now at all of the resorts. Fresh snow and cold temperatures are helping create an early Christmas present for skiers, snowboarders and snowtubers. From Canaan Valley and Timberline in Tucker County to Snowshoe Mountain in Pocahontas County to Winterplace in Raleigh County and over to Oglebay in Ohio County fresh snow covers the slopes for skiers and snowboarders.
All of the resort’s snowmakers are hard at work again after last week’s mild temperatures. Right now if you take in account all of the resorts snowmaking efforts, over 20,000 tons of snow is being produced per hour, enough to cover 20 football fields with a foot of snow each hour.
All of the resorts continue to add skiing terrain daily for the holiday visitors, all of the resorts are open and operating at full day and night schedules. Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing continues in high gear as the natural snowfall has allowed White Grass Touring Center and Elk River Touring to provide their Nordic trails, also with awesome conditions.
