The snowstorms that bookended Thanksgiving didn’t deliver quite enough snow to allow Anthony Lakes Mountain Resort to open for the season.
But it’s getting close on the slopes, said Chelsea Judy, marketing director for the ski area in the Elkhorn Mountains.
“We’re in really good shape,” Judy said earlier this week.
Anthony Lakes has a base of 15 inches.
“We just need another good storm or two,” Judy said.
She estimated that about 30 inches of snow fell over the holiday weekend, but it was the powdery variety that settled.
There was enough, though, for employees to use groomers to pack the snow into a solid base on several runs, Judy said.
Anthony Lakes doesn’t plan any major changes to its operations this winter. Snow conditions, an events calendar and other information is available online at www.anthonylakes.com
