Skiers enjoyed a day on the slopes after La Crosse received more than four inches of snow
More than four inches of snow after a week of cooler weather made it possible for Mt. La Crosse Ski & Snowboard to open to a large number of skiers Saturday.
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – More than four inches of snow after a week of cooler weather made it possible for Mt. La Crosse Ski & Snowboard to open to a large number of skiers Saturday.
With the cooler weather over the past few weeks, crews at Mt. La Crosse have been working to produce snow in hopes of opening at least one run.
When La Crosse was hit with more than five inches of snow Friday night and early Saturday, the La Crosse ski area was blessed with a near perfect weekend.
With one run opened, skiers wasted no time in making their way to the resort so they could enjoy some winter fun.
While pleased they were able to open this weekend, General Manger Darcie Breidel said the forecast for the return of warm weather will mean a shortened start to the season.
“We’ve got a lot of warm temperatures coming our way so really we’re just glad to have this weekend of cold temps,” Breidel said. “We’re really glad we were able to make as much snow as we did so that we can make it through these warm temps that are coming.”
“The only run that was opened is an intermediate run.” Briedel said. “Which means first-time skiers will have to wait for their opportunity to take up the sport.” 
Briedel added that the slopes will be open Sunday but will be closed during the week and future dates will depend on when the cold temps return.
To check for future openings, visit Mt. La Crosse’s Facebook page or call Mt. La Crosse at (608) 788-0044 for more information.
