Snow and mixed precipitation fell throughout the day in areas such as Snowshoe, Canaan Valley, Deep Creek Lake, and Seven Springs.

Better get those new tires and tune-up that vehicle because it looks as though this season is going to be a big one. Looking at the pattern of severe weather throughout this past year, I expect this winter to set some snowfall records.

So I ask you this one question ... are you ready to get snowed in at you favorite ski resort?

Photos of First Snow of the Season At Wolf Laurel Resort in NC See our news site at The snow is really starting to pile up & our skis are ready. Maybe some ski photos tomorrow even though the lifts will not be operating but this is probably just wishful thinking but remember you have to be optimistic to ski way down south in Carolina.

Having lived and skied in Switzerland as well as most of New England and out West, as the local skiers say down here when asked about NC skiing this aint Colorado but it is convenient for Southern skiers..

Call me if you have questions at 1-888-689-5001 ext. 28 & feel free to post or forward the photos.

Thank you for your time and interest.
