Timberline averages between 160 and 180 inches of natural snow per season. This year it received more than 208 inches
"We've had an incredible season. Anything over 200 inches for the southeast is huge.
"Overall, our season ski numbers are up over last year. A lot of that has to do with our really good season and Virginia and Pennsylvania having a borderline season. It has a lot to do with our increased natural snow because our summit elevations exceed 4,250 feet," Smith said.
Ski school instructor Tom Peterson said he's loving the current conditions.
"Usually in spring you have warmer weather, softer snow and spring-like conditions. But this is more like mid-winter conditions. You don't usually see this -- it's great skiing," he said.
Greg Hoyer, who has frequented Snowshoe Mountain since he was a child, will try to get one more visit in.
"Saturday might be the day, given the weather. I've already been about eight or nine times since the first of the year, and I'm very happy I already bought a pass for next year," he said.
Skiers and snowboarders aren't the only ones benefiting from the March snow showers. The five-month ski season in West Virginia has an estimated economic impact of more than $250 million and 5,000 jobs at the resorts.
"This is a quarter-of-a-billion-dollar industry in the state -- not just in resorts, but in businesses that depend on the resorts: restaurants, hotels, gas stations, bed and breakfasts close by the resorts," Stevens said.
"It's an industry that has quite a few tentacles. Everybody is working a full season this year, and that helps stimulate the local economy."
