Terry Peak Ready For More Snow

February 28, 2012, 5:24 PM by Derek Olson

Terry Peak Ready For More Snow

At Terry Peak, skiers are celebrating the chance of more snow.

The area's seen nearly two feet of snow in the past week, and fresh snow means busy slopes.

"When people hear about snow that we've got snow, they start flocking in.  We had a wonderful weekend this past weekend.  It was probably almost as busy as President's Day Weekend, which is awesome," Terry Peak's marketing director Linda Derosier said.

And lately, the snow's been piling up.

"Last weekend, in a lot of places there were upwards of two feet of snow.  That snow has been skied out, settled and groomed.  So it really doesn't matter where you go; the conditions are outstanding," skier Ed Sewell said.

"We've had a total of 110 inches at this point.  So, the season is really shaping up nicely for us," Derosier said.

"Today is by far the best day that I've taken up here.  I was hoping for some fresh snow, but maybe it's going to come now," skier Desiree Stowe said.

With more snow on the way, conditions could get even better.

"A lot of powder; that's what we want," skier Nancy Smidt said.

"We were hoping for that this morning. May have to take tomorrow off, too," Stowe said.

"If you can possibly get away when it snows, you get away when it snows," Sewell said.

Because the people out here have been waiting for weather like this all winter.

"The more snow we get, the happier everybody is.  It's turning out to be a wonderful ski season for everyone out here," Derosier said.

If you want to check the conditions at Terry Peak, they post that information online at 7 a.m. every morning.
