Cold spells help area ski resorts get early jump on making snow | New Today | heraldstandard.com

The recent cold snap has allowed some local ski resorts to start making snow ahead of schedule.

At Mystic Mountain at Nemacolin Woodlands in Farmington, Jennifer Noah, the marketing manager with Nemacolin Woodlands Resort, said they plan on opening the slopes on Dec. 20.

Along with skiing, Nemacolin also offers snow tubing, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and dog sledding, as well as ski and snowboard lessons and a children’s snow camp.

“The early drop in temperatures allowed us to fire up the snowmaking system on Nov. 8, the earliest start of snowmaking in recent memory,” said Katie Buchan, communications manager with Seven Springs Mountain Resort in Champion, Hidden Valley Resort in Hidden Valley and Laurel Mountain in Ligonier.

According to the Seven Springs Mountain Resort and Hidden Valley website, 4 inches of natural snow has fallen in the mountains. Laurel Mountain has reported 7 inches of natural snow.
