Nature is getting a seasonal assist on the metro slopes. They’re making snow to sprinkle into the cold at Mt. Crescent.
Snow machines are humming a wintry tune at the Mt. Crescent Ski Area. The owners are busy making a white blanket in preparation for the ski season.
They’re expecting the Winter Olympics to help make this year to be one of their best.
Mt. Crescent’s Samantha Fleischer said, “When people see the Winter Olympics on TV, it brings awareness to winter sports. Skiing people see it on TV and they remember there’s a ski hill in their own hometown and they come on out. Everybody wants to try the sport."
The Mt. Crescent Ski Area is scheduled to open December 14.
