spent the afternoon andryanna says: "these ski lifts here at the mt. ashland haven't been able to run in quite some time. everyone here up at the ski and yesterday, the termperatures have been super cold so, what snow we did have from the last few systems that came through was holding on pretty good." mt. ashland ski area's general manager hiram towle hopes this storm will add to the snow that's left. but whether or not the ski area will officially open it's doors--- towle says that's up to mother nature. hiram says: "it depends. if it comes in light and fluffy for 12 inches, no. if it comes in nice and heavy and doesn't get blown all over the mountain that would be on the lower end of what we need to open." and even then, towle says that still might not be enough to open the ski area. hiram says: "we don't know until we go out and actually ski on it. if it was 3 feet, we'd say 'absolutely we're going to open but when we're on marginal conditions already and only getting a foot on top of that we'll have to wait and see. but we'll be screaming it from the mountain tops as soon as we can open" towle says any amount of snow in the forecast is exciting. employees are optimistic and look forward to this storm and the ones that follow. hiram says: "there's still some more in the forecast into april and maybe even may if we can." andryanna says: "we'll be sure to let you know when the ski area is finally able to open again this season. you'll be able to find that on our website, kdrv.com. in ashland, andryanna sheppard, newswatch
