— To make up for last year, Maple Ski Ridge opted to stay open year-round and hosted events like 5-K runs, craft fairs and a fall festival. They are also celebrating their 50th year in business with five generations of the same family working on the hill. Michener said they are proud to be able to provide fun, recreational activities to the community for so many decades, but now their goal is getting people back on the slopes.

“Even though Mother Nature might not provide a great season, we can provide snow,” she said. “We need people to realize that even if it isn’t in your backyard, we have snow.”
