Even with the limited amount of snowfall we've had this season, McCauley Mountain and many other ski slopes have been making their own snow.
To make up for the minimal snowfall we've had this season, McCauley mountain has been working hard to make enough snow. The Town of Webb Tourism Director, Mr. Mike Farmer, says "Eighty percent of our trails and slopes are covered by snow making. We're working every single night the crews are out here to extend that coverage. And as everybody knows, it takes a lot to cover some areas of McCauley."
Right now there are only a few trails ready for the grand opening. Mr. Farmer says "We'll definitely have one trail top to bottom and our beginner area, the Mighty might area. A little family area. All of those will be operating, groomed, covered." But they are working to make more available. Mr. Farmer says "We'll see what this week holds, as far as temperatures, where we can keep expanding the snow making and maybe have some extra trails open at that time."
Because of their snow maker, they are ready to open this week. Mr. Farmer says "McCauley is ready to open. People know what that means. It means fun for families in the snow on McCauley. And we have every variety of skiing and snowboarding for every skill level in the family. Come on up and enjoy it."
Their grand opening is Friday December 11th. They will be open from 9am to 4:30pm. You must sign in from your phone when you get there for contact tracing and adhere to their coronavirus safety measures by social distancing and wearing a mask.
