Oregon’s southernmost ski resort, Mt. Ashland, announced Friday that it will not open due to lack of snow. That’s the first non-opening in the mountain’s fifty-year history.
A snowpack of less than 20 inches and forecasts for March temperatures in the 60s weighed in the final decision, said Kim Clark, general manager of the non-profit ski resort.
“The daffodils are up and the trees are blooming down here, and people are starting to think about springtime activities unfortunately,” Clark said.
