We decided 3 days ago to make the most of a fantastic week of snow in the mid-atlantic by hitting our one of our hidden secrets in Canaan Valley WV. Almost 100% open, skied onto the lift every run, found lots of natural powder stashes (even on some of the named trails!!!). Loved that both lifts were running to the top to spread out the lack of people even more. I don't understand why it is necessary to blow snow in paying customers faces all day when there is snow falling from the sky. This has got to be the only complaint I have as you cant even hold a conversation with your lift mate.
