Two Feet Of Freshies Extends Snowshoe’s Season Another Week
The season started early in November when Snowshoe Mountain Resort in West Virginia picked up the “good side” of Hurricane Sandy. Now, the latest storms and two feet of fresh powder mean it’s not over yet.
Snowshoe has received some four feet of snow in a March (two feet this week) that roared like a lion and shows no signs of leaving like a lamb. The resort, set to close Easter Sunday, March 31, will now remain open until April 7.
“Ski resorts everywhere hope for this kind of unbelievable weather pattern in January and February, let alone March,” says Snowshoe’s Dave Dekema. “This is a skier’s dream. We are beyond excited to offer our guests an additional week of skiing and riding.”
The season has all the markings of being the longest in a decade, Dekema said. Virginia students have the timing right: Their Spring Break matches up perfectly. Value pricing for lift tickets and lodging have been extended as well.
