LEAD, S.D. -

Ski season isn’t far away, and ski resorts are hard at work making sure their trails are ready.

In a typical year, by the beginning of November, ski resorts like Lead’s Terry Peak receive on average 19 inches of naturally falling snow.

Terry Peak is a little behind that average this year, reporting only 12 inches of fallen snow so far this season. But, it’s doing much better than last year, when the first significant snowfall at the ski resort didn’t come until Nov. 17.

Although Terry Peak is a bit below normal this year, that’s not to worry, as the ski resort has plenty of snowmaking capacity, and with below average temperatures likely over the next few weeks, the snow making machines will have plenty of time to build up a healthy base on the trails.

As for the official start of the ski season? Terry Peak didn’t open until Dec. 2 last year, but favorable snowmaking conditions mean that we might be hitting the slopes a little bit earlier this year.
