"The latest cold-snap and natural snowfall was graciously welcomed" said Snow Trails Marketing Manager, Nate Wolleson, "our opening tomorrow couldn't have come at a better time for the many who are excited to ski in Ohio, reminiscing of the phenomenal winter weather last season."  Natural snowfall builds excitement, however snowmaking efforts began at 4:00am November 26th, continuing through today, building the needed base of snow for Snow Trails to groom the slopes and ready the resort for opening day. Snow Trails will offer 10 of 15 slopes, multiple Terrain Park features, two lifts, and conveyor ski carpet for Opening Day. Additional Trails will open for Kick-Off Weekend December 11th and 12th.
