As North Carolina Department of Transportation crews continue to work around the clock, some in Madison County are enjoyed an early December snow day
“This one is pushing the attitude, pushing the individual mindset,” said Wolf Laurel Ski Resort Director Johnny Goin. “For Southerners, they have to have it in their minds and it will move them towards the mountains now that they see the snow.”
Goin was excited to get to work, starting the snow machines for the first time this season.
He said this round of snow came right on time
“Hopefully we will be open this weekend with everywhere from three to five or six runs open," Goin said. "We’ll see, it could be more depending on how much snow we get.”
By mid-day it was 28 at the resort, which Goin said is the ideal temperature for snow-making.
Madison County schools were closed today, which meant first grader, Grayson got to go to work with his grandpa and play in the snow.
And the Ortiz family traveling from Virginia back home to Georgia, stopped to enjoy the snow in Madison County, since the winter weather is a rarity for their three young children
“It’s getting really freezing,” said 7-year-old Yosari Ortiz “In the morning when we woke up, me and my sister went outside, told my mom if we could go outside and it was so slippery.“
