Ski Resorts Open As Result Of Snow Spawned By Sandy

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (October 30, 2012)--Snow plows were out Tuesday in the southern Appalachian mountains, beginning what could be a long week of snow removal as forecasters predict as much as 3 feet of snow spawned by Hurricane Sandy.

The early snowfall in higher elevations could be a boon for the area's ski resorts, which have sometimes struggled to keep their slopes open.

Forecasters in West Virginia expanded a blizzard warning for high winds and heavy, wet snow.

No significant power outages were reported as of Monday afternoon.

Farther south in Boone, N.C., as much as a foot of snow was expected.

Sugar Mountain spokeswoman Kim Jochl says the ski resort plans to open by Halloween, the earliest opening ever in 43 years of operation.
