Maine ski operators, particularly smaller ones, are enthusiastically embracing the back-to-back blizzards this month.
Even a short drought can leave some mountains struggling for the rest of the season to recoup their losses.
Only two weeks ago, parts of Maine were reporting temperatures in the upper 50s. That wasn’t making ski area operators like Bill Whitcomb at all happy. But this week’s snowstorm has put a smile on his face.
“Right now, snow in the month of March is frosting on the cake anyway, so anything you get is great,” he says.
