      Gladstone ski hill is opens this weekend

      The Gladstone Ski Hill is kicking off the ski season early this year! Saturday, for opening day, the park will be open from noon until 6 p.m.

      The park features beginner and intermediate hills, three tube runs and a terrain park with a half pipe.

      The park was able to open all runs early this year with the help of their new water reservoir and snow making capabilities.

      The park employees are happy they were able to open in time for Christmas break.

      "All those kids, they're just ready to hit the hills,?? said Jason Davis, Assistant Director of Parks and Recreation. ??They're ready to have fun. They've been in school, and they finally get this break and they'd like to come out here. "
