Fresh Powder For Skiers And Boarders
If you ski or snowboard, you're likely loving this snow. So is the Cataloochee ski area in Haywood County.
Conditions are great for both hitting the slopes and for cashing in. Cataloochee says it got a foot of fresh snow with the storm. The Maggie Valley ski area says from all the cold weather, theyve been able to lay down a base between 71 and 101 inches.
While the ski area is cashing in, skiers and snowboarders are getting in the grove.
Everyone's been really fired up on the chairlift hooting and hollering laughing and having jokes. I think everyone is having a great time today. So you couldn't ask for a better day to get out there and shred some pow pow, says a snowboarder who goes by the name Otis.
Cataloochee even opened a section called the Meadows Wednesday. The ski area plans on staying open till March 30th.
