Snowshoe Mountain Resort has announced it will officially open for the 2012-13 winter ski and snowboard season on Wednesday, November 21st, matching the resort’s earliest opening day in the last 15 years. Snowshoe officials credit over two feet of natural snow and excellent snowmaking conditions for the great early opportunity. 
 
“If there could be a silver lining to the huge storm that impacted so many people in our region at the start of the month, it’s that our mountains, which experienced a warmer, shorter than normal winter last year, received over two feet of heavy snow with which to open our businesses and invite guests to our region,” said Frank DeBerry, President and COO of Snowshoe. “With cooperating cold temperatures we’re able to build a snow base and start spinning the lifts in time for a much needed Thanksgiving holiday weekend for many.”
 
Resort officials will monitor upcoming temperature and weather patterns prior to determining total terrain open at the start and eager skiers and riders are encouraged to seek regular updates at the Resort’s webpage. The recent short spike in daytime temperatures and the long range forecast looks to support a better than average scenario for opening top-to-bottom terrain at Snowshoe Basin and possibly even the close-by Silver Creek ski areas. 
 
“Silver Creek is typically not opened until the middle of December,” added DeBerry. “This fresh snow combined with our snowmaking capabilities has put us in great shape for the early ski season and we think we just might be able to add it to the mix earlier than ever.”
 
The new winter zipline will also open on November 21.
