Ski Roundtop, Ski Liberty, and Whitetail have finally succumbed to the mild winter. All three resorts are temporarily closed; Roundtop aims to re-open Wednesday, while Liberty and Whitetail have their eye on colder mid-week temperatures in the hopes that they will be able to resume snowmaking and re-open.
Ski Liberty is currently closed. The resort will re-open if colder temperatures return and snowmaking can resume.
Snowshoe received an additional inch of snow Saturday, followed by 3-4 on Sunday, for a grand total of over 174 inches for the season. With daytime temperatures in the mid-40’s, Snowshoe has put snowmaking on hold but plans to resume when temperatures permit. All 54 trails at Snowshoe and Silver Creek are open with a base depth from 38-86 inches. Snowshoe reports that the moguls are growing on Lower Cupp and Bear Claw. A DCSki reader visited Snowshoe on Sunday and raved about the new layer of snow received Sunday, particularly the untracked powder on Cupp.
