MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) - Marquette Mountain is in the middle of covering their slopes with snow for the upcoming ski season.
Other ski hills like Ski Brule in Iron River and Indianhead Ski Resort in Iron Mountain have colder temperatures and are already up and running.
According to Marquette Mountain staff, the temperatures are finally cold enough in late November to run the snow makers. The bugs have already been worked out of their equipment, and their crews are trained and ready for what this coming winter has in store.
"Between mother nature and Lake Superior it's been a little bit of a struggle this year, but you know I was looking at numbers last year and it's about the same, last year we did not get open until about December 10th, so we're right on track," Marquette Mountain manager Jesie Melchiori said.
Advanced lift tickets are available and they are ready to sign up kids for ski school lessons.
