So, how’d they do? With light snow still falling on Tuesday morning, area resorts have begun to shovel their way out of the first significant snowstorm in the D.C. area.
Seven Springs received 6-8 inches of new snow from the storm, and has now opened 100% of their terrain, the first resort in the area to do this. Surface conditions are powder and packed powder, with a base depth ranging from 28-34 inches in snowmaking areas and 6-12 inches in natural snow areas.
Whitetail was blanketed with over 10 inches of snow, supplementing their 14-32 inch base depth. Three trails are open, and Whitetail hopes to open upper Angel Drop and Homerun within the next day or two.
Ski Liberty received over 4 inches of snow, and has four trails open with a base depth up to 15 inches.
Snowshoe has received over 21 inches of new snow, which is nothing new for them - so far this season, they have received over 90 inches of natural snow. Snowshoe is offering a base depth of 48-78 inches, with 38 trails open. More trails are slated to open in the coming days.
Folks aren’t complaining at Wisp, which has received over a foot of fresh snow. 14 trails are open at Wisp, with a base depth from 20-46 inches.
At Roundtop, 3-4 inches of snow have fallen, adding to a base depth of 14-24 inches. This has allowed Roundtop to expand their open terrain to eight trails.
Conditions are ideal at all area resorts, but use caution driving to the resorts as road conditions may be slippery.
