Powder day: Scenes from Wolf Ridge

Local ski areas are reporting great conditions and it looks like more snow is on the way, with Ray’s Weather Center predicting another 6 to12 inches for the highest peaks over the next couple of days. On January, 10, we went up to Wolf Ridge Ski Resort in Madison County and encountered powder that’s more typical of the Rockies than the Southern Appalachians. Here’s a short video of what we found:

Shot on Jan. 10 (with additional footage culled from Dec. 27).
Music by Mingle.

Note: Skiing and snowboarding in the woods is dangerous and wearing a helmet is highly recommended. Xpress does not condone riding in roped off areas.
