So I've been watching ski cams, every resort here in TN or NC is opening this weekend, Snowshoe with 20 something inches of snow already and nothing, I mean NOTHING from Winterplace.

No website updates, no teasers, no mention of anything really other than check back soon. I bought my weekday ski passes a couple of weeks ago and haven't heard anything.

Being that I've never been sitting here at the start of ski season anxiously waiting like this... is this NORMAL? for Winterplace? I know the weather hasn't be very favorable for them, but still... no word? no buildup? whats up?

I believe that the projected date is now to open on Dec 6th.
Website still reads the 12th though.

Hopefully they'll open to the top on opening day. They had pretty impressive snow piles 2 weeks ago.
