Shasta Readies For Ski Season, Ashland Gets Closer

mtashland.com webcam
Mount Ashland on January 22nd.

Ski season took a while, but it's finally getting close. 

Shasta Ski Park announced plans to open for the season on Wednesday (later pushed back to Friday, January 26), while Mt. Ashland Ski Area could open the slopes to visitors later this week if the expected storms deliver the expected snow. 

Both ski areas are geared to open between Thanksgiving and mid-December, but the weather did not cooperate... and even with recent storms, snow coverage figures to be less than optimum. 

Hiram Towle is the general manager at Mt. Ashland.He joins us with perspective on the late start and prospects for the rest of the season.
