Overnight temperatures in the low 20s in the Laurel Highlands enabled Hidden Valley and Seven Springs to make snow until mid-morning today but no opening date has been set at either resort.
Snow-making operations will resume late Friday night or Saturday morning on the front side of both resorts and then run continuously through the weekend, weather permitting, said Eric Mauck, the resorts’ CEO.
“We are committed to providing our guests with excellent snowmaking and grooming and our mountain crews will take advantage of every opportunity to make snow for opening day,” Mr. Mauck said.
Wisp Resort overlooking Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland plans to start making snow in the new few days, said spokeswoman Lori Epp.
Snowshoe Mountain in east-central West Virginia has been making snow on its 4,848 foot high terrain for more than a week and, weather permitting, plans to open 10 slopes and trails and three chairlifts on Nov. 27.
