LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Temperatures slipped into the single digits in parts of our area Thursday night into Friday morning. The people at Mt. La Crosse took advantage of the frigid air to get the snow machines running, nearly a month sooner than last year.
"While an early snowmaking date is exciting and hopefully a sign of a good skiing winter," said Mt. La Crosse General Manager and Market Director Darcie Breidel in an email to News 8, "the first night of snowmaking also offers a chance to make sure everything is running properly and that optimum snowmaking can be achieved once round-the-clock snowmaking weather arrives."
Round-the-clock snowmaking weather won't arrive in the next week. Temperatures around our area are expected to be back in the 40s in the next few days.
