Skiers and snowboarders are hitting the slopes across West Virginia.
Snowshoe Mountain and Oglebay opened in November and Canaan Valley opened last weekend.
Cooler temperatures have allowed resort's snowmakers to continue to cover the skiing and snowboarding terrain.
Officials say that when snowmaking conditions were at their best this week, more than 20,000 tons of snow was being produced in West Virginia per hour.
The state's ski and snowboard season typically runs from Thanksgiving through early April.
