(Glenwood, NY) A weekend winter storm spared most of the Buffalo metropolitan area, but dumped several inches of snow in locations East and South of the City.

According the the National Weather Service, some of the heaviest snowfall amounts were reported in Wyoming County near Warsaw.

Locations near Wethersfield, NY saw 14" of snow.

The ski areas also reported receiving substantial amounts of good quality snow.

Holiday Valley reports 10" of new snow in the last 48 hours, and Kissing Bridge is reporting 6" of new snow during the last 24 hours.

Overall, it has been a tough winter for skiers as Western New York weather has seen unusually warm temperatures with below normal snowfall totals.

"This is the most unique winter that I've seen in a long time," says Peter Calleri, Marketing Director for Kissing Bridge.

"It going up and down, up and down, hasn't been anything consistent."

Because of the weather fluctuations, Kissing Bridge is extending the deadline to use vouchers purchased through the "Super Savings on Seven" program.

They were supposed to expire on February 26th, but will now be honored through March 25th, or the end of the skiing season, whichever occurs first.

Night lesson vouchers will expire on March 4th, and daytime lesson vouchers will expire on March 11th.

"I know Mother Nature hasn't been real good, so we are trying here." adds Peter Calleri
