While temps in the lower WV mountains have been striking 40 degrees, winter arrived with a vengeance on Snowshoe Mountain.

The resort reported nine inches of snow with a weekend storm.

Snowshoe spokeswoman Laura Parquette said the snow began falling late Friday night, marking the earliest snowfall at the Pocahontas County resort since September 2006.

The resort doesn't plan to open up for ski season until Nov. 23.
