Appalachian Ski Mtn. opened for the 2015-16 on Tuesday morning.

“It’s a beautiful day,” ASM General Manager Brad Moretz said. “It’s great to be open. We have some snow and things are looking great.”

Eight slopes on the mountain are open, and the base is 12 to 24 inches.

“Conditions are great, with freshly made snow from the past 36 hours,” a release from ASM reads. “The Appaljack Terrain Park is open with a variety of fun and mellow features for all abilities.”

No pass is required for the terrain park.

As usual, the first 100 skiers received a free pass on the mountain for the day.
