(Brian Brennan:"I took advantage snow plowed this morning and then come over here this afternoon with two of my sons. It is a family sport and get out with them is great."
Workers at Bigrock have made a lot of snow so far this year and add the man made and the natural snow and you are setting up for a great season.
Kearney:"This year is more a typical year we have two weeks of snow making in and probably have another week to finish everything up. Our snow park needs a little snow."
The downside over the next couple of days will be the brutally cold wind chills that have been projected for part of the week.
Kearney:" We are pretty busy today and tomorrow and Thursday are questionable it is going to be really cold the next couple of days. We are going to play it by ear. We watch the wind chills and we will make the decision to operate or now."
