      Ski hill still open

      Although spring is here and the snow should be melting, the Gladstone Ski Hill is still open. It was originally scheduled to close in early march, but the extra cold winter is allowing them to continue operation.

      The hill is planning on keeping all the runs open through the end of March. Their new water reservoir and increased snow making capabilities along with the long, hard winter are all contributing to the extended season. The hill hopes the longer season will bring in new faces.

      â??People who are involved in sports who usually canâ??t get away during the weekends, because weâ??re open longer, theyâ??re able to come up here and enjoy tubing or skiing or snowboarding,â?? said Gladstone Parks and Recreation assistant director, Jason Davis. â??So itâ??s exciting to see new people and for them to check us out.â??

      The hill is open weekends from 12-6. For more information call the Sports Park at (906) 428-9130.
