The winter weather has made an appearance in the Northeast, and Snowshoe Mountain is reaping the benefits, as it will open tomorrow for the ski and snowboard season.  Several inches of fresh snow has fallen on the ski resort this week, and cold temperatures have enabled the snowmaking crews to blanket the slopes.  The annual “rope drop” ceremony, which signifies the start of a new winter season, will take place on top of Heislers Way at 9:00 a.m.  Lift tickets are $55 for Saturday, and the ski resort is planning to have 7 trails and 3 lifts open.
