Author thumbnail By M. Scott Smith, DCSki Editor

The winter season made a sharp turn this week -; back towards winter. Temperatures plummeted, and the mountain regions of West Virginia were greeted by up to 6 inches of fresh snow on Wednesday morning, January 17, 2006. The long-term forecast shows no sign of the cold abating, and more natural snow could arrive soon. The following photos were taken on Wednesday.

Six inches of fresh snow and a temperature of 4 degrees Fahrenheit greeted skiers at Snowshoe Mountain resort on Wednesday morning.
