According to the National Weather Service, there is a chance for snow showers at Snowshoe early Wednesday morning, with a high temperature of 44 degrees Fahrenheit expected on Friday.

While the slopes will not be ready at Canaan Valley, visitors will be able to take part in ice skating beginning Thursday.
