Mt, Shasta Ski Park Opens Slopes

Posted: Jan 26, 2018 6:14 PM

McCloud, Calif -- The Mount Shasta Ski Park saw an increase of customers Friday morning, arriving as early as 7:30.
"I haven’t missed an opening day here in 15 years,” said Marc Anderson.
The park however didn’t officially open until nine.
This enthusiasm comes after weeks of the park looking like this, but now its full of snow.
"As soon as the snow started coming down we were doing as much as we could to help make it as proactive as possible. To get some of the runs going and groomed," said park social media manager Sarah Bryan.
And skiers, snowboarders, and snow lovers were waiting for the change.
“How long have you been waiting for the snow?
Too long and its finally up here im ready to ride,” said snowboarder Derek Birdsall.
But this snow fall doesn’t just affect the park, it's also showing revenue in Redding.
The "Redding Sports Ltd." store on Hilltop Drive says since the park posted they were opening two slopes on Friday they’ve seen an increase in customers.
“We definitely had a huge influx in traffic. People trying on ski boots looking at skis, buying snowboards and snowboard boots," said Chris Brewer.
And its not just locals.
But people as south as San Francisco are coming to enjoying the snow.
A change the park has been looking forward to.
