"With this Presidents' Day weekend, with the weather being under thirty-two degrees, the rentals here have been, it has just been crazy." said Warren Wuelsh of Sno Mountain.
"Now because of the busy holiday weekend, the mountains have been packed, and that means ski patrols are keeping an extra eye out on skiiers making sure everyone is being safe."
"Well, little things we can do to keep it safe are mark any obstacles that people should be aware of. We try and keep people on the groomed trails.
