waynesboro@herald-mail.com MERCERSBURG - About 300 skiers and snowboarders took to the trails at Whitetail Ski Resort on Saturday for the opening day of the 2002 skiing season. It was only the second time in the resort's 11-year history that the season has opened in November. October's above-normal rainfall in the area is a harbinger of a cold, snowy winter, said Chris Black, marketing director at Whitetail. He said the resort is expecting excellent snowfall this winter based on the fall rains.

MERCERSBURG, Pa. - Above-average winter temperatures, while nice for many Tri-State residents, were not embraced by the owners of Whitetail Ski Resort and the patrons who normally flock to the 19-slope ski run every year. Whitetail spokesman Chris Black said Tuesday that the Blairs Valley Road resort ended the season with business about 15 percent below that of a year with normal winter temperatures. Still, it wasn't the disaster that some thought it might have been, Black said.
