January 5 2016 – Are you hungry for snow? So hungry that you would do anything to see it? Well, a friend of mine went out west with her boyfriend this past weekend in hopes of reaching a winter wonderland. Due to the timing of the arctic air arrival, the burst of snow to reach western Maryland and West Virginia was at their peak on Monday January 4. In short, they decided to stay an extra day to travel between Snowshoe Mountain and Wisp capturing photos and video to share. But to do so, they had to skip work. Since they played hooky, they can not receive full credit for what we get to see below, but we get the spoils of their foil. It was some serious dedication, and I thank both of them for their Faith in the Flakes. See my friend’s message to me below.
Elevation Played A Big Role
Snowshoe Village is at the top of the mountain at 4,848 Ft. That made a bog difference with the amount of snow. They got 4.5″ while at the bottom, there was barely a trace. These photos in the slider are in order from top to bottom to give the impression of the variety of snow:
