McCLOUD, Calif. – The Mt. Shasta Ski Park is off to a great start this season. Wednesday was opening day up on the mountain, originally scheduled for Friday, December 14th.

“It's always an adrenaline rush on opening day. You can't sleep the night before. People are excited. They've been cooped up all summer long and ready to hit the slopes," said skier Frank Mojarro.

Nick Satariano has skied on opening day for more than three decades and was not going to make this year an exception.

"You got to get it while you can and we want to support area in the town. It’s great," he said.

"It's not super crowded yet and a lot of people have that midweek day to have their park to themselves so it's a good way to get your feet underneath you and figure out how to make turns again and all that," added Taylor Russell. He’s an employee at the Mt. Shasta Ski Park in the Marketing Department.

Some even ditched the kids to have fun on their own.

"[We dropped] the kids off at school, did some riding. We're going to be back just in time to pick them up. They were a little bummed we didn't get to come but we can take that to school for that," said wife and husband Kelly and Chris Burris.

They all remember last year’s tough season. The Ski Park opened and closed a few times and was only open for about 42 days last season. Russell said it snowed on the mountain in November and they all thought they’d be able to open the park earlier than usual. Then it all melted.

“We had no snow pretty much for December and January last year. We had a little storms come through but nothing consistent. I can say we probably didn't make much money last year,” Russell added.

This year is already looking up. Russell believes the ski park will be open longer this December and January than last year’s entire season.
