The following summarizes current conditions at area resorts. After a rainy week for most of the nearby resorts, colder temperatures have returned and area resorts have been able to resume nighttime snowmaking.
Liberty has managed to fire up the snowguns at night, adding 4-6 inches of new snow and bringing the base depth to 16-24 inches. Conditions are groomed loose granular. 7 slopes (out of 20) are open.
Rain doesn’t seem to be in Snowshoe’s vocabularly - as usual, they got snow (bringing the year total to 148 inches) while it rained at lower elevations. 100% of Snowshoe’s terrain is open, with a base depth of 36-82 inches. Conditions are groomed loose granular. Snowmaking continues at the resort.
Roundtop has made 3-6 inches of new snow, bringing the base depth to 15-30 inches. Conditions are packed powder and loose granular, with 11 trails open (out of 16).
Seven Springs has made snow on select terrain, but is in pretty good shape with 14 slopes and 16 trails open. Base depth is 42-54 inches, and 10-12 inches in natural snow areas. Conditions are groomed granular.
Whitetail received 3” of snow last week before receiving rain. The resort is on the road to recovery with renewed snowmaking, bringing the base depth to 15-32 inches. Conditions are groomed loose granular. 9 or 10 trails (out of 17) will be open today, depending on the results of last night’s snowmaking. Whitetail hopes to open some expert terrain by next weekend.
