Ski Report Wednesday, February 19th, 2015

We're at peak ski conditions and the downward slide to spring will not be too fast this year.
Normally President's weekend represents the peak of skiing in our region. Slope counts and base cover are both usually at their largest numbers and the holiday weekend usually is the busiest on the slopes. There has been no slide at all this week. In fact, slope counts and base cover have both increased a little more. Most resorts are near to 100% open and there has been no lose of snow on the slopes. In fact, the nickel and dime events have added to the snowcover. 

As for the weather this weekend, the relentless cold will ease a bit. There will be some snow developing on Saturday and there can be a moderate snowfall before sleet, freezing rain and perhaps rain mixes in Saturday night into early Sunday. The best chance for this changeover will be in the resorts from the Laurel Highlands to the south. 

Next week still looks cold, but not as bitter. This means conditions will not change much through the end of February. Though an increasing sun angle will eventually win out over the cold, ski resorts will probably run out of skiers before snow this year. 


Happy Turns,


Joe
