Charleston, WV – The 2012/2013 ski season ended on Sunday, April 7, 2013. Thanks to Mother Nature the season was a very good one for all of the resorts.
“The conditions are excellent all season for skiers and snowboarders,” says Terry Pfeiffer, President of the West Virginia Ski Areas Association and President of Winterplace Ski Resort.
White Grass Touring Center, the state’s largest Nordic Center in Tucker County, is also providing excellent coverage for cross-country skiers and snowshoers and will do so as long as the snow lasts on the trails.
The mountain state’s resorts have experienced an up tick in visitation this season after suffering through a mild winter last year. The five-month long ski season in West Virginia has an estimated economic impact of over $250 million and 5000 jobs at the resorts.
