Snowmakers at the Pine Mountain Ski Resort are hard at work prepping some of the slopes for their first open weekend.
Two of the runs and one lift will be open starting this Friday, November 29, at 10:00 a.m., with a discounted lift ticket of $15 dollars. The slopes will also be open Saturday, the 30, and Sunday, December 1, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Those in charge said they're taking advantage of the cold weather as they fire up the machines.
â??The machines do run all the time, 24 hours a day,â?? said employee, Beth Chanlynn. â??We have three shifts of men working on the hill to get as much snow made as quickly as possible. So far the temperatures are cooperating with us, and it looks good for the whole week,â??
The slopes will close during the week for continued snowmaking, but will be open again the following weekend.
