Old Forge, N.Y. - The snow has continued to fall in the north country the past few nights, and now with cold temperatures projected all week, the smiles are coming out in Old Forge as it appears there will be an early start to the winter tourism season.

Town of Webb Tourism Director Mike Farmer was all smiles on Sunday when we went up to interview him about how much wintry weather plays a role in Old Forge when it comes to tourism.

Farmer says so many peoplefrom out of the area call once November hits and ask how much snow is on the ground, and this year, he can tell them well over a foot already.

Farmer says about four inches fell over a week ago, and then with the foot of snow that fell Thursday night into Friday, plus a couple more inches the past couple of days, there is now a nice wintry feel to the town.

Farmer says Old Forge is now ready to welcome guests the next three weekends.

The Adirondack Christmas on Main Street is set for this Friday through Sunday.

The following weekend the snowmobile trails are expected to open, and the week after that, McCauley Mountain is expected to open and Farmer says that will be at least a week eearlier than normal, "Normally, McCauley opens the middle of December, but we are geared for December 8th, Saturday, December 8th right now. Not only are we getting an abundance of snow, which is great, it came on suddenly, it wasn't really a change the season, I was just winter all of a sudden "
