Ski season starts early in eastern Minnesota
TAYLORS FALLS, Minn. (AP) — The ski season is open at Wild Mountain in Chisago County, a sharp contrast to the water slides that were operating two weeks ago.
Ski hill operators say Oct. 7 is the earliest start on record. A chilly start to October created the right conditions for the hill in Taylors Falls to begin making snow.
Amy Frischmon tells KMSP-TV as soon as it dips below freezing they have a crew ready to turn on the snow-making guns.
