CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — A fifth West Virginia ski resort is open for business this new year.
The ski industry reports that Oglebay resort in Ohio County opened for skiers and snowboarders on New Year's Eve. Winterplace, Snowshoe, Canaan Valley and Timberline opened in November and December. For cross-country skiers and snowshoe enthusiasts, White Grass Touring and Elk River Touring Centers report excellent conditions.
Besides the snow already on the slopes, snowmaking in higher elevations is ensuring a layer of fresh snow on many runs. More than 20,000 tons of snow was being produced in West Virginia per hour at peak conditions.
Terry Pfeiffer is president of Winterplace and the West Virginia Ski Areas Association. Pfeiffer says skiers and snowboarders from Virginia, North Carolina and Florida are enjoying West Virginia's slopes.
