I looked through your other pics and saw that Sharp Top was 3875. I honestly didn't think you were up that high at which point I went and looked at a map.

I'm not intimately familiar with this area but I know of Snowshoe which doesn't look too far away, and I know they get snow, and enough winter to keep a ski resort open. But they are a bit more inland and consistently higher elevation. I'd assume it's a bit warmer on that "front range" having little in the way of blocking any air from the ocean.

I also noticed quite a difference in the forest type from what I've seen in Snowshoe - they look to have a spruce, balsam, maple forests. Those pics of yours look like mostly white oak, hickory and red pine.
