Lower temperatures lift snow lovers' spirits

Posted: Updated:
LEWISBERRY, Pa. (WHTM) -

Wednesday night was bitter cold at Roundtop Mountain Resort, but that did not deter skiers and snowboarders from bundling up and hitting the slopes.

How cold was it?

"Where your toes feel like ice cubes cold," skier Jayson Richardson said.

The name of the game was to wear layers and cover every inch. Almost every person we saw at Ski Roundtop was wearing a face cover for warmth.

Following a day of snow covered streets and the start of a cold snap, it appeared it all lifted skiers' spirits.

School cancellations even helped attendance, those at Roundtop say.

"Skiers and snowboarders absolutely dream of this," Roundtop GM Ron Hawkes said. "They wait all summer and all fall for a good cold winter, and we are being blessed with it this year."

Still, the frigid temps are something the resort takes seriously.

"Our staff members are very well trained to look out for each other and look out for guests in case of a little frostbite-type of thing, so we keep an eye on that," Hawkes said.
