Since opening Thursday, a constant flow of skiers and snowboarders has found the slopes at Whitetail Ski Resort in southern Franklin County. Cold temperatures in the past few weeks have helped snow-making efforts, and warmer temperatures Saturday brought out quite a nice crowd, Whitetail’s director of marketing and sales Katrina Gayman said. “Everybody was getting excited,” she said. “Once the cold temperatures set in, we were able to make snow around the clock, and that definitely enabled us to open up as early as we did.” Gayman, who has worked at Whitetail for the past decade, said the resort opened the same week last year, but on Saturday instead.

From the time Bill Dietrich formed the Two Top Mountain Adaptive Sports Foundation in 2007, his mission has included teaching those with physical disabilities how to ski. Doing so is not much different than teaching someone without disabilities to take to the slopes, Dietrich said this week. “Skiing being a gravity sport, it's how the person approaches it, whether they're disabled or not,” he said. “Gravity doesn't care if you're standing up or on a mono-ski. “We are really just teaching skiing and adapting it to them with their disability,” said Dietrich, the program's executive director.
