GLENWOOD, NY (WKBW)-Local ski resorts are cashing in on some bonus days out on the slopes thanks to a frosty start to Spring and a recent surge in lake effect snow. Last year at this time Kissing Bridge was already closed due to extreme warm weather. This year employees are already celebrating day 90 of the ski season.

"Last season Mother Nature forced us to close on March 9th," said Kissing Bridge General Manager Mark Halter. "What a difference a year makes."

Skiers and snowboarders have been packing the slopes, leaving countless resorts and their patrons all smiles.

"The conditions are immaculate.These conditions are some of the best of the season," said Avid Skier Joe Najuch.
