Nearby ski resorts have been open since just after Thanksgiving, but a lot of the excitement tends to start after the first significant snowfall of the winter, according to Lori Epp, director of marketing with Wisp Resort in McHenry.
In the Deep Creek Lake area, Epp said, they tend to see an average of 120 inches of snow each winter, whereas the Washington and Baltimore areas see about 20. Once the snow falls in these areas to the east, the crowds come out.
“If it’s not snowing and cold in your backyard, you may not think that four hours away, it’s different weather,” she said. “The natural snow is what gets everybody really excited.”

A storm riding a blast of cold air will continue to unleash heavy snow on the central and southern Appalachians Saturday and will turn toward part of New England Saturday night and Sunday.
Heavy wet snow and falling trees could block some roads in parts of the Appalachians.
Even in the absence of heavy snow for the major cities, including along the I-95 corridor, gusty winds can lead to travel problems for a time. Flight delays are possible in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City and Boston.
