By AMY WALLAUER Staff Writer This week's mild weather has taken area ski resorts on a downhill ride, forcing at least two of them to suspend operations. Whitetail Ski Resort in Mercersburg, Pa., and Ski Liberty in Carroll Valley, Pa., both suffered this week when temperatures soared, snow melted and fog rolled in. Whitetail closed Wednesday because of persistent fog and unseasonably warm temperatures. The resort hopes to reopen on Saturday, but only if conditions are nippy enough for snow-making: About 28 degrees.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Hummelstown Pa.'s plans to buy a new 250-acre golf course near the Whitetail Ski Resort could be thwarted if the owners of Penn National Golf Course in Quincy Township, Pa., follow through with a threat to sue over the purchase. Christopher Mattson, a Lancaster, Pa., attorney representing White Rock Inc., owners of Penn National, said Tuesday that his clients are claiming the sale to Hummelstown, a municipality, would create unfair competition between the two golf courses because Hummelstown can finance the purchase with tax-exempt bonds.
