Visitors to West Virginia ski slopes continue to experience the best conditions in the southeast and mid-Atlantic regions with new snow this week and more to more. So far this season over 15 feet of snow has dropped in the mountains of West Virginia this season, including over a foot in the last week. The fresh snow and cold temperatures are helping the resorts to be 100 percent open as every trail in West Virginia is open right now. 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 the slopes are in great shape for skiers and snowboarders that can take advantage of this week’s snowfall.
Some snowmaking continues throughout adding to the natural snows as some the resorts are experiencing the best conditions in recent seasons.. Right now if you take in account all of the resorts snowmaking efforts, over 20,000 tons of snow is being produced per hour (when temperatures drop into the teens), enough to cover 20 football fields with a foot of snow each hour.
Now would be a great time to check out what all of the resorts are offering for Spring Skiing and Riding Specials in March. Don’t miss on a chance to enjoy awesome conditions, milder temperatures and smaller crowds on all of the slopes in West Virginia.
The natural snowfall remains the good word for those who love Cross-country skiing and snowshoeing as that sector of the industry continues in high gear as White Grass Touring Center and Elk River Touring are providing fun in the backcountry. The backcountry powder has never been better.
