Ski season began early for Bryce Resort's 50th anniversary year


Bryce Resort is one of three year-round resorts located in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. The resort's relatively small size may be just one of the things that give it a family-friendly appeal.

Bryce's slopes can be a good place to start for young and beginning skiers and snowboarders. And only after just a few runs down Bryce Resort ski slopes, there's always a good chance the lift attendants start remembering you by name.

Bryce Resort is tucked behind one of the foothill ridges of the great North Mountain, and literally at the base of the eastern leading edge of the Allegheny Mountains and the Shenandoah Valley's western border between Virginia and West Virginia. It's one of those places that, once you are there, you can feel like you are a lot farther away from it all than you really are.

In reality, it's only about 11 miles west of Interstate 81, exit 273, the tiny little Shenandoah County town of Mt. Jackson, Va., where Civil War-era building architecture abounds and factory tours at Rt. 11 Potato Chips are enjoyed. More about Shenandoah County later.

Bryce Resort turns 50 this year, and in its entire history there has only been one other time that skiing could be offered as early as Thanksgiving – and that was just last year. This year, the ski season really took off early, thanks to those eight inches of snow that fell the day before Thanksgiving.
