Pennsylvania Seven Springs Mountain Resort, Hidden Valley Resort, Bear Creek Resort, and all the Pocono Mountain Resorts have been blasting snow at every opportunity that temperatures allow. They are working to build up their current base, to preserve as much of their snow as they can, as well as moving on to expand to open more terrain for skiers and riders.
So has the West Virginia Resorts of Timberline Resort, Canaan Valley Resort, Winterplace Resort, Oglebay Resort, and Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Snowshoe, New General Manager Frank Deberry has been working hard with mountain crews to open more terrain opportunities for skiers and riders at the north central West Virginia snowsports resort. On January 7, Snowshoe's well known Cupp Run will be open to the public.
New York's super five, proudly named Hunter Mountain, Greek Peak Mountain Resort, Labrador Mountain, Bristol Mountain, and Plattekill Mountain made loads of snow and received snow, and did receive snow as of the first of the year.
Maryland Wisp Resort received over 13 inches of snow early in the year. Add their SMI snowmaking capacity system into the formula and they were able to increase and preserve their base for the holiday weekend.
New England snowsports resorts Okemo Mountain Resort, Stowe Mountain Resort, Sugarbush Resort, Bolton Valley Resort, Smugglers' Notch Resort, Burke Mountain Resort, Mount Snow Resort, Bromley Mountain Resort, and Magic Mountain Resort all of Vermont. Made as much snow as possible when their temperatures drop. In Vermont, the nights are cold enough to make snow most of the time.
These resorts also payed close attention to the grooming standards of their slopes and trails, so that snowsports fans get the best experience.
New Hampshire's Gunstock Mountain Resort, Waterville Valley Resort, Ski Cranmore Resort, Attitash Resort, Loon Mountain Resort, and Wildcat Mountain Resort, as well as Ski Butternut Resort and Jiminy Peak Resort all have been making snow around the clock, and opening as much new terrain as possible for their guests.
