Mother Nature places cross-country skiing on hold

Nordic skiers will have to wait just a little while longer.

Silver Star Mountain Resort is unable to open the cross-country ski trails today (Friday) because of insufficient snow.

" We had almost enough snow a week ago but that was followed by warm temperatures and rain," said Robin Baycroft, resort services manager.

"The cooler temperatures we are experiencing today are a positive step and now all we need is some more snow to fall. All of the nordic staff and trails are ready to go. We just need Mother Nature to co-operate."
