“This decision was a tough one with only two or maybe three weekends left in the year, but the forecast for the week ahead is for possible rain and very warm temperatures,” said Kim Clark, general manager in a press release.
Clark said Ski Bluewood’s maintenance crew “has done a fantastic job of farming snow out of every area we can find, and we have the mountain ready for this weekend. With that said, we are out of areas to get snow, and this has added to our decision.”
Clark called this winter a challenging season, though the resort has been open for 51 of 52 scheduled days this season.
Ski Bluewood’s traditional year-end bash won’t happen this year due to this earlier-than-normal closing.
