As winter approaches and many students find themselves stuck indoors, Tussey Mountain can provide an outdoor escape for students looking to enjoy the snow.
The ski resort’s nine slopes for skiing, snowboarding and tubing are scheduled to open on Dec. 11 this season. Mountain manager Tom Matalavage said the expected opening date is earlier compared to previous years and is tentative depending on the amount of snowfall.
Erik Pindrock, a meteorologist with Accuweather, said he’s predicting the ski conditions to be less than ideal this season in State College and elsewhere in the Northeast. The season will have more mixed precipitation in the form of rain, snow and ice, which could make for below-average skiing conditions, he said.
