Not that we really want to give Punxsutawney Phil any sort of credence with his prediction last weekend of an early spring, but our weather this winter isn’t exactly helping the cause.
Thanks to snowmaking capabilities, the skiing and riding season hasn’t been a bust though. Far from it. In fact, the further north you go, the more apt you are to find a surprising amount of snow.
But still, riding chairlifts over rocky expanses below, all while staring into glade trails that are roped off due to a lack of snow, well, it can be disheartening.
