Fall is always an extremely busy time for myself, so normal life got in the way of regularly posting on Ski Mad World. I’ve been caught up at work plus it didn’t help that I decided to go Trick or Treating down in West Virginia on Frankenstorm storm. Paid a heavy price to catch up at work, but it was worth it. Unfortunately my memory card was zapped, but I’m trying to retrieve what I can in the next few days in order to post a TR from down south.
In other news…
After the Sandy storm dumped snow in the Southern Appalachian which some ski areas in the least damage areas manage to open (Cataloochee and Sugar Mountain) in North Caroline. None of the lift served areas of West Virginia which got a couple of feet of snow opened, however the awesome White Grass cross-country and touring area is open.
More to the north…
The cold air that followed Sandy permitted a few ski areas to make snow. After an mid-OCtober opening for its passholders, Killington was again, on Monday November 5, the first to open to the public in the NE. Sunday River open the following day while Mont St-Sauveur opened on Wednesday. These three areas all opened on the last weekend of October last season to be first three to open.
Other Eastern ski areas open or opening this weekend include
Okemo VT, Sugarloaf ME, Woodbury CN and Camp Fortune QC.
