ELKHART – This warmer weather and lack of snow has some people worrying that we will not have a white Christmas, but for some local businesses it's affecting their "green".
With the temperatures we are having people are not ice skating, skiing, snowboarding, or any other winter activities. Not only do ice rinks not make money but they have to run compressors to keep the ice frozen too.
The local cities in the area are not the only businesses that are affected. There is no snow at Swiss Valley up in Michigan. The ski area needs temperatures to dip to at least 24 degrees and continue going down to even think about making snow.
So far it has been too warm and now too wet. Owners are hopeful that in the next week or two they will be able to get snow made.
