CHARLESTON, West Virginia — Ski and snowboard season is getting underway in West Virginia.

Snowshoe Mountain will be first with a Wednesday opening. Winterplace will offer three days of alpine skiing starting Friday, then officially open full time on Dec. 12, along with Timberline. Canaan Valley opens Saturday.

West Virginia Ski Areas Association spokesman Joe Stevens says snow already has fallen in the mountains, where temperatures have been cold enough for man-made snowmaking as well. He says that means excellent season-opening conditions.

The ski and snowboard season traditionally runs from Thanksgiving through early April.
