Ski Roundtop cashing in on extreme winter

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

Even on a Tuesday afternoon, Ski Roundtop in York County was packed.

"People are hyped. It's fantastic out here right now," said Lutricia Eberly with Ski Roundtop.

Large amounts of snowfall, school closings and the winter Olympic games have made a positive influence on the resort's bottom line.

"It has been as close to perfect as we could ask for. It's been an awesome winter. It's been a lot busier, especially this past weekend," said Eberly.

Lessons and beginner packages have increased this winter, according to Eberly.

"With the Olympics going on, it's brought a lot of people out to thinking that they are going to get excited and try out the sport," said Eberly.

For some it may be skiing, but Justin Van Buren travels from Maryland to hit the slopes on his snowboard.

"It's been really busy all winter, the fact that we have had such a precipitous winter here has been incredible," said Van Buren.

Van Buren is an avid snowboarder and gets hyped for the Winter Games, even about that sport that nobody seems to understand.

"It gets me excited. I want to go start curling. I mean, the Olympic Curling Center is in Maryland. I am thinking about signing up. So, if the Olympics will make me want to start curling, I am sure it will make people want to jump on the slopes," said Van Buren.

Roundtop officials say another winter like this will be hard to come by, but they are not looking ahead to the future just yet when the time now is a true present.
