"The mountain is looking beautiful," said Snowshoe rep Lindsay Kutsko. "There's snow in the trees and it feels like winter." Snow began to fall Monday night and continued into early morning Wednesday allowing the mountain to recover most of the terrain lost over the weekend. With the cold snap predicted to last into the foreseeable future, the mountain looks to open new slopes within the next couple of days. According to Kutsko, it is not unusual for Snowshoe to see the majority of its snowfall in the second half of the season. So far, 14 inches have fallen in January giving the mountain an average base of between 18 and 30 inches. The frigid temperatures have also allowed Snowshoe to churn out the man-made stuff on much of the open terrain as well as Cupp Run, Widowmaker, Skidway and Upper Cascade with the hope of opening them soon.
