A Sad Day.

18 Nov

Yesterday, Appalachain Ski Mountain released the official report of what we all already knew and dreaded: they would not be opening on the scheduled opening day. The resort had stayed optimistic, and did not make their standpoint official that they would not be opening tomorrow until yesterday. In other news, the snowpack laid down recently by Ski Sugar and Cataloochee is dwindling, with not even enough rideable patches at Sugar, and a constantly narrowing trail at Cataloochee. The season started strong, but is dying now. We just have to wait for the right temperatures and enough of the natural stuff to fall to be able to ride.

Here’s the links, should you wish to see:

Very depressing at the current moment. However, at the time of publishing this, Ski Sugar has temperatures appropriate for being able to blow snow, in the mid 30s with low humidity.
