“We love when storms roll in. Just the excitement it brings to the hill,” said Director of Recreation Service Jon Regenold. “The wet snow that came in on Tuesday and Wednesday was really thick it provided some struggles with the lift and everything but we were able to get rolling again on Thursday and invite everybody to come play in the snow for a really good time out today.”
