SNOWSHOE, WVA - Just as the fall foliage begins its climax, Mother Nature looks like she’s officially over her trysts with Summer and Fall, and is ready to move on to Old Man Winter — what a flirt! Temperatures are predicted to plummet to below freezing with Saturday night with precipitation expected to fall in the form of the season’s first snowflakes atop Snowshoe Mountain Resort.

Temperatures will cool steadily over the next few days, with Friday’s high predicted in the 40s and overnight lows dropping below the freezing mark for the second time this fall. Saturday’s daytime high may not reach the 40 degree mark at the mountain’s top elevation of 4848′ and overnight lows are expected to dip well into the 20s. With precipitation expected both Friday and Saturday night, the first flakes of the season may fall before the calendar even turns to October.

Some models are even predicting exceeding the 1″ mark!

Snowshoe Mountain is situated in the Allegheny Mountain range and with a base elevation above 3000′. Their season stretches from mid-November until early April and being the largest winter resort in the region, more than 200,000 skiers come each season to enjoy Snowshoe’s nearly 200″ of annual natural snowfall. This season’s long range models are calling for a colder than normal winter season, which is good news for the region’s skiers and snowboarders. Snowshoe Mountain has one of the country’s most powerful snowmaking operations, covering all of the resort’s 244 acres of skiable terrain.
