FLAT TOP - Skiers and snowboarders hit the slopes across the Mountain State.
The West Virginia Ski Areas Association said that when Timberline in Tucker County opens and Winterplace in Raleigh County reopens Friday, all of the state's ski resorts will be operating for the season.
Cooler temperatures allowed the resort's snowmakers to continue covering the trails. Officials said snowmaking conditions were at their best this week, with more than 20,000 tons of snow made in West Virginia per hour.
The state's ski and snowboard season typically runs through early April.
