SNOWSHOE, WV (WSLS 10) - Although it's only fall, some businesses in the region are already looking ahead to the winter season.

Snowshoe Mountain resort has already started making snow.

According to staff members, they have had several good nights of snowmaking and they're hoping to continue it this weekend.

They will need another three or four days of snowmaking in order to open.

Wintergreen and Massanutten have not started making snow as they require consistent periods below 32 degrees.

Staff members say the average winter season starts December 10.
