Anyone gone skiing in WV yet this year?
How'd you find it?

I'm thinking about going this weekend. I've gotta get started on my season.

I made turns in my back yard yesterday afternoon. Just had to get on the boards.

Snowshoe got 17 inches of snow. Really tempted to take off work tomorrow. Except I'm supposed to meet with a new orthopod. I have to babysit Sat.

If you are interested in meeting at Snowshoe on Sunday PM me.

It supposed to be 57F though. Bring your slush boards!

I'll be lucky to make it to Winterplace . . .

. . . but I'll check in with you sometime later in the season

I called the Winterplace hotline. They are supposed to be open Sat. the 8th. Not sure of conditions and slopes to be open. In my experience you have to be careful with their report. It isn't always accurate. Open could mean the tube park.

Subaru Demo days at Snowshoe, free with a lift ticket. Probably abig crowd.

I was at Snowshoe on Thursday (12/6) and it was excellent. They had groomed all the recent natural snow in for some great packed powder. Only two top to bottom runs open (spread over 7 trails), but I still had a great time. It was a bluebird day, 25F and sunny.

They were making a bunch of snow on many of the trails that were closed, and I expect the trail count to jump up for the weekend, along with opening of connector trails to/from the south mountain.

Of course, there is a warmup coming over the next week, so this small window of spectacular snow will deteriorate in the near term. But I think they have a pretty solid base going at this point.

I called today and Winterplace will open tomorrow with 4 trails, not even to to mid-mountain!!

Easy Street, Wanderer, Highland Run, and Cascase (intermediate--if you can call it that?)

If they would have went mid-mountain, i'd be there at 8! Snowshoe is looking good with the natural stuff.

I wish mountain ops and the snowmaking crew would head over to the Western Territory as soon as they open a few on the basin side. Get that vertical going!

Preeetty cool there skiingathome. Maybe i'll get a snowmaker and put a terrain park in the woods behind the house!

This is da maaaster plan. Snowshoe on Sunday. If you all want to meet in Lewisburg and carpool? Leave vehicles at Wally World? Just a brain synapse or a snaps, one of those.

I never heard of anyone getting towed. There is a mall beside wally's. I've seen RV's park there, and with the Christmas crowd, I doubt anyone would even notice.:

Well I got back from Timberline. I went with a group from my Church and we stayed in their luxurious "bunkhouse".

The snow was decent for mid atlantic skiing other than there wasn't much of it and it was a bit on the wet side. It was raining pretty hard today so I didn't ski today even though I had a ticket for today. I had had enough of the one green circle anyways.

They only had 1 green run open or four if you count runs in the typical mid atlantic manner of 1) upper bunny hill 2) lower bunny hill 3) flat beginner area 4) gathering area by lift line.

I had a good time but mostly because of the fellowship with friends and the novelty of being back on snow for the first time this season. Most of the group were beginners to low level intermediate. The few stronger skiers that went had some fun inventing games to play down the hill.
