Old Man Winter continues to dump powder on Snowshoe – resort will stay open longer
SNOWSHOE, West Virginia – Despite the calendar-turn to Spring, Snowshoe Mountain, the #1 ski resort in the Mid-Atlantic, is getting an extra piling of fresh powder from Old Man Winter. With over four feet of new snow this month, and two feet added just this week, the resort announced today that they will now keep the mountain open through Saturday, April 7. The resort was originally set to close this Sunday, March 31 but officials feel it would be ridiculous to turn their back on the best late-season snow conditions in years.
“Ski resorts everywhere hope for this type of unbelievable weather pattern in January and February, let alone March. We’ve had 18 inches of new snow in the last 72 hours,” explains Dave Dekema, marketing director, Snowshoe Mountain. “This is a skiers dream. We are beyond excited to offer our guests an extra week of skiing and riding.”
Snowshoe Mountain is currently enjoying one of its best winter seasons in years, as big storms allowed the resort to open early in November and now late season storms will allow the resort to host its longest season in over a decade.
Snow continues to pile up at the resort as it has been continually falling since Sunday on the resort.
