MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Officials at area ski resorts are lamenting the warm weather during a week when they should be making a cool profit.
"While this is typically our busiest week, the weather has been atypical," Missy Merrell, spokeswoman for Ski Liberty in Fairfield, Pa., said Tuesday.
Only three of Ski Liberty's 16 trails are open, she said.
"We haven't been able to make snow on many nights. We're definitely dreaming of a white Christmas here," Merrell said.
At Wisp, in McHenry, Md., it's been rain instead of snow, said Clay Carlton, sales manager.
"They've predicted a break in the weather in the next 24 to 36 hours. We're supposed to get a few flurries on Christmas Day," he said Tuesday.
