Late Season Snow Great for Local Ski Resorts

Many of us are ready for warm temperatures and summertime, but others are welcoming the spring snow, including everyone at Timberline Resort in Tucker County.
They've been able to keep their ski slopes open well past their normal season. One ski instructor told 5 News he hasn't seen it snow like it has in March for the past decade. He said he's traveled all over the world to ski, and the conditions they have at Timberline are some of the best he's ever experienced.

The reason this year is so different than any others is all because of the type of snow that's fallen. Typically at this point of the year, the snow is wet and heavy, making it hard to ski on.
However, this year it's been light and fluffy, making the perfect conditions for winter sport enthusiasts.
"To give you an idea, as of February 28th, we had 150 inches of natural snowfall, and by March 28th, we're now at 218 inches. That's 68 inches in just basically a very short month here," said Ludovic Moore, a ski instructor at Timberline.

Officials said they'll stay open as long as they can to make the most of this unusual winter weather.
