I just got word in from owner Chip Chase that White Grass will be opening 5K of Nordic terrain sometime today once he can groom his snow farm. Fences on that farm picked up a 2 foot base overnight.

For the latest on the status of White Grass:

I would call 7 Springs. But if you are in the CV, I think your best bet is White Grass. It's close and it will be fun just to get out on the snow. I would be there if I were not stuck in DC for the weekend.

Whitegrass was indeed open today. Conditions were good. It was great to get those first turns out of the way for the season.

Things are even better today:

"28 at dawn with 6-8 inches new snow everywhere and it is a holiday Sunday in November...yeehaw!

Open Today: 50 km with caution and take a whitegrasser that knows the micro lines to stay dry and rockless

Groomed: we rolled about all our trails and there is a solid 2"-3" cover there

Snowfarm: Super ultra deep, thick, white and being groomed right now"

There is a big difference between what falls and how much is on the ground. I measured 9.2" in Davis from the storm. But I only allow a couple of inches to fall in my snow guage before I empty it so as to not allow settling from the weight of the snow to set in and taint the measurement of the actual amount of snow that has fallen from the sky.
