Feedback: Lack Of Snow Causes Anxiety For Some


It's another quiet day at Dry Hill Ski Area in the town of Watertown.

"The funniest questions we always get is -  when are you going to open?  We never know.  We don't know when we're going to get a long stretch of cold or heavy snowfall," said Tim McAtee, Dry Hill owner.

For now, the lifts are closed even though Dry Hill has been making snow.

"It's not like we don't have snow here. We've been laying it down thick," said McAtee.

But colder weather is needed to make enough snow to fill out the rest of the hill.

"If it would just go down to the low 20's for a couple nights, right now we'd be open for skiing," said McAtee.

Over at Watertown Power Sports, business is slow, too.

Not enough snow means not enough customers.

"Mother Nature, please let it snow," said Amy Spry, office manager at Watertown Power Sports

That would certainly please the snowmobilers and the crew at Dry Hill Ski Area.

"My staff and I are working as hard as we can and we'll open as soon as we can.  If Mother Nature could help a little bit, it would go a long way," said McAtee.
