There's been some controversy this year about the snow totals being reported by Timberline. They do not correlate with White Grass or Canaan Valley's totals. The issue was reported today here:
For the record, I'm not one of the people complaining. I don't care what the snow total is because it means nothing: what's on the trail is what counts. However, I do think that Timberline should get with the program and employ proper NOAA methodology for measuring snow.
Snowshoe has been pushing for all area resorts to employ this methedology and if resorts are confused, I suggest they contact Snowshoe Mountain Operations to see how the pros do it there.
