Beech Mountain, NC, Jan. 28--Skiers below the Mason Dixon line are in powder heaven, with some of the best conditions of the season. The recent bout of unseasonable storms has left plenty of white the mountains of North Carolina.
A slow-moving snowstorm brought powder to local ski areas. Ski Beech resort has gotten about a foot in the last two days, Sugar Mountain has scored about 7 inches, and Hawks Nest got dusted with between 5-6 inches. Base depths at North Carolina resorts range between 40 and 90 inches.
Another winter weathermaker is tracking toward the region, bringing more snow over the weekend.
