How you could be skiing on last year's snow at one Vt. ski area
Recent rain and warm temperatures have been a setback for cross-country ski areas which had been enjoying a strong start to the season. But one local Nordic center is turning to last winter for some help.
Our Kiernan Brisson visited the Craftsbury Outdoor Center on Monday. Like many Nordic areas, Craftsbury relies on a combination of natural and man-made snow. But they also have some snow on standby just in case.
"We're having so many winters where the temperatures are just fluctuating up and down, back and forth, losing all our snow even in January and February," said Eric Hanson of the Craftsbury Outdoor Center.
