If the webcam is updating, looks like they still have snow in the trees! Local weather (wheeling) calling for snow this weekend. Anyone got any first hand info on conditions?

Closing weekend, hell may freeze over at my house.

Jimmy, My hope is for a repeat of last year's closing day of monumental proportions. However.... Anyway, there was still snow in the trees on Sunday, but heavy rain on Monday. Can't say for sure, but it would probably take a lot of natural to get my skiis above the debris in the woods for the weekend. I am glad that the temps are dropping below 32 at night. The corn was getting pretty heavy on Sunday and was in desperate need of a freeze. I will be at t-line for the weekend regardless.

Coverage was good last weekend. I'm sure the rain didn't help though. I would say the stuff in the trees is getting pretty thin. When I drove by this morning I couldn't see any bare spots on the open runs. Looks like flurries for the weekend so I should be pretty good.

Thanks D&K, Now all i have to do is estimate the grief i'll get when i leave early Saturday. Contrary to what my wonderful, understanding very special (she's been lurking lately , love you dear) wife may think, ski season isn't over until they turn the lifts off.

damn straight! We're heading up to Snowshoe this weekend, and it sounds like the cooler weather can only help conditions. If they get a bonus dusting of snow, which seems likely, all the better!

I am on my way to Snowshoe also. Looks like snow, cross your fingers. If you see a big guy on supercross heads, and a cloudveil jacket yell at me. I will be on the ballhooter lift first thing in the morning.

How long does a trip like that take you. I'm also from Pittsburgh but have never made it to Snowshoe due to its distance.

3-4 hours depending on how close your are to 79 and how fast you drive.I only do it once a year.

There is chance that if we get underdeveloped snow down there are crew might head to Holiday Valley it just depends on the weather. If we go to snowshoe i will ski alittle with some dcskier. I have silver giro 9 with oakley wisdoms,Metron B5s, salamon Xwave tens, and Helly hanson jacket.

OK, I had to concede to the wife that ski season is over when Tline turns their lifts off, but ski season, (mine anyway) lives til Sunday. See ya at Tline Saturday

I just checked Accuweather for Davis, WV and they are calling for 1-3" of snow Saturday night and another 1" on Sunday am.

Hopefully they are right about the snow and wrong about the quantity. Another 30" closing weekend storm would be sweet.

If T-line gets snow on Sat. night, I'm going to head up to T-line on Sunday am.

Keep your tips crossed on this one.

Hold on folks!!!! The weather services are calling for some heavy white on Saturday night and Sunday am. Hmmmm, I think the potential for some fresh pow-pow is really in the cards. Elevation will play an important into when, and how much. Anybody wanna go out on a limb and make a uneducated guess? I say 2-4" at t-linr and maybe a few more at the shoe by sunday.

Accuweather is actually calling for less snow at the Shoe. Which doesn't make a lot of sense, as I would think that the rain would change over to snow earlier at the Shoe due to its elevation.

I'm optimist - 10" of pow

The forecast shifted about half a day -- downside meaning we might get rained on Saturday during the day. But having fresh snow (won't be pow, but will still be nice) on Sunday would be frickin awesome for April. Who knows, could turn out to be a good ski weekend despite Saturday rain!!

I have learned not to trust the non-mountain forecasts, so if anything, there will be cooler temps and more snow than they are calling for. In fact, elevation alone makes that a sure bet for Snowshoe.

RogerZ said a while back that spring arrives from the south, maybe that's why they're predicting less for shoe. I'll make the best of a rainy day Saturday, any one besides me got one more snow dance left?
