PENINSULA, Ohio - The cold weather this week has been good for business at area ski resorts.
"We got some weather," said Derrick Gingras of Copley who ventured out to Boston Mills Thursday night for the first time this season. "It's perfect for getting out skiing."
Boston Mills/Brandywine marketing director Steve Mackle said business started picking up at both resorts when the temperatures dropped.
"We really needed the cold temperatures to make snow," Mackle said.
"We had that rain and that warm weather a couple of weeks ago and it really put a damper on the snow conditions that we had. So I think we've been around 80 continuous hours of snowmaking in the last couple of days which is great for us."
Mackle expects business to pick up even more this weekend after the snowfall that's predicted for Friday.
