RAPID CITY, SD -
The winter skiing season has started in South Dakota's northern Black Hills.
The Terry Peak Ski Area opened some slopes Saturday.
The ski area has struggled this year with little natural snow and warm temperatures that prevented the ski areas from making their own snow.
But snow makers got a few opportunities in the past week to get enough snow on the slopes to let people on the mountain.
Terry Peak will be open only on weekends until it's cold enough to get snow on the rest of the mountain.
