The unseasonable warm weather will be delaying the opening of Mt Ashwabay's winter activities. Snow has finally begun to fall, but we are still very far behind. The warm weather has also prevented any snow-making operations. The Mt Ashwabay Crew and Volunteers are waiting anxiously for colder temps and lower humidity to fire up the snow guns.
