Ski slopes closed
MERCERSBURG, Pa. -- Last week's spring-like weather ruined the fun at Whitetail and Ski Liberty, the area's two ski resorts and officials at both remained doubtful when the slopes will reopen.
They saw a ray of hope on Saturday with thermometers hovering around 30 degrees. Snow-making at both resorts was expected to resume Saturday night and again tonight as long as temperatures cooperate, officials said.
Matt Sawyer, a spokesman at Whitetail in Mercersburg, said the cold front moving into the area over the weekend is still no guarantee that skiing there will resume early in the week. "We're going to make snow at every opportunity," he said. He predicted that skiing won't resume there until later on in the week.
