DAVIS, W. Va. — My annual ski trip with my friend Ryan took us to Timberline this year. While we had originally planned on going to Hunter Mtn. in New York State, a number of factors prompted us to choose a place close to home. The promising snowfall predictions for West Virginia, 4,000+ feet [...]
Pa. ski resorts adapt to the mild conditions – The Inky
Another season of poor snowfall isn’t holding back the ski areas in Eastern Pennsylvania like as much as last year. Cold nights have allowed for
snow-making even though the days have been a bit warm. Just a new normal it seems.
Seven Springs and other Western Pennsylvania [...]
Over the weekend, a number of resorts within driving distance of Washington, D.C. have fired up the snow guns (DC Ski).

Lousy end to lousy mid-Atlantic ski season – Capital Weather Gang, The Post
This was going to be the winter that I went skiing several times. I had the “time off” accrued and had worked myself into pretty decent shape for skiing. There were even some late October snow falls where I planned to ski. Then, [...]
CLAYSBURG, Pa. — Blue Knob ski area is nestled in a state park of the same name. The Summit Lodge, is not particularly noteworthy in appearance, other than being at the top instead of the bottom of the slopes, but that’s part of the charm.

CLAYSBURG, Pa. — This winter of discontent in the mid-Atlantic made finding the time and and place to ski or snowboard a tough one. My friend Ryan and I determined that Saturday, February 4 would fit our schedules the best and I spent too much time and energy worrying about the forecast for that day. [...]
This winter I discovered the Web site DCSki.com | @DCSki when I was looking for a “lost ski resort” off of I-66. It turned out to be Ski Cherokee in Linden, Va. I have since enjoyed the many reviews of mid-Atlantic resorts that DCSki.com offers. I decided to set up a Q&A with M. Scott [...]
A brief respite from drought and warmth in Western Pennsylvania this past weekend looks to be nullified by rain. Hmph! The Poconos and rest of the Northeast may be fairing worse. Apparently, there wasn’t even snow at Vail, Colo. two weekends ago! Just brutal. We’re going to run out of winter before it even gets [...]
Earlier in the week I posted about the tough times for Northeast ski areas. It isn’t just the Northeast — most of the whole country is suffering from a snow drought according to Capital Weather Gang:
The snow cover across the U.S. can be best described by one word: pathetic. Here it is January 6, and [...]
