Dec. 05, 2012 @ 04:18 PM

SNOWSHOE, West Virginia –  Snowshoe Mountain Resort will host a free day of skiing for all West Virginia residents this Saturday.  All West Virginia residents with proof of residence (state issued ID, utility bill, etc.) can ski for free on Saturday, Dec. 8. 

The resort’s conditions are strong as nearly 28 inches of snow came to the resort from storms, solidifying the resort’s earliest opening in ten years.

The resort now has 7 lifts and 21 trails open.  Silver Creek will remain open on weekends only, until it’s regularly scheduled opening of Dec. 14.

While Snowshoe Mountain and White Grass are already open, the rest of the resorts — Timberline, Canaan Valley, Winterplace and Oglebay — are right on their heels looking to open at a normal time this year.

Timberline is set to open on Dec. 13 while Winterplace is also opening next weekend, Friday,Dec. 14. The last two resorts, Canaan Valley and Oglebay are set to open in mid December.
