Mt. La Crosse closes for the season

Winter-like conditions helped slopes stay open longer this year

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Mount La Crosse officially closed its hills to skiers Sunday at 4 p.m.

General Manager Darcie Breidel said conditions on the hills are still good, but the weather is getting to be inconsistent and customer numbers were down, so it was time to shut-down for the year.

"The winter-like conditions extended the season for a week longer than originally scheduled, and with the earlier-than-usual Thanksgiving weekend open, the season has been the longest in a decade," Breidel said.

She said it's possible if a huge snowfall (12 inches or more) hits our area, Mt. La Crosse would re-open.
