“The snow making crew has cranked up the snow guns and white, fluffy snow has been falling. A beautiful white carpet has started to blanket the mountains,” says Dana Quillen, VP of Marketing and PR at the resort.

Dana says snow making will continue as colder than normal temperatures are predicted through the end of November and into December.

Snow Making began in the tubing park Wednesday, but may start on the slopes as early as Thursday afternoon. [3]

The Plunge tubing park will open for the Thanksgiving weekend beginning on Friday, November 28, 2008.

As we have been telling you in our custom daily weather [4], temperatures at our NCL-Wintergreen Nature Foundation site [5] have been well below freezing for the past two days. Overnight readings have been as low as 12° recently. And, daytime highs have held in the 20’s.

“The projected opening date for ski runs across the mountain is December 12, but could be earlier,” Dana continues.
