W.Va. Ski Resorts Welcome Fresh Snow

West Virginia's ski resorts are welcoming fresh snow for the new year, and more is on the way.

The West Virginia Ski Areas Association says all resorts including Canaan Valley and Timberline in Tucker County, Oglebay in Ohio County, Snowshoe in Pocahontas County and Winterplace in Raleigh County all have received a couple of inches of new snow.

Officials also say recent natural snow has continued to improve the conditions at the state's cross-country areas, White Grass Touring in Tucker County and Elk River Touring Center in Pocahontas County.

The West Virginia ski and snowboard season traditionally continues through early April.

The resort's snowmakers will use the cold temperatures to create manmade blizzards, producing 20,000 tons of snow per hour when the temperature drops into the teens.
