Don McKay, General Manager at the Tyrol Basin in Mount Horeb, says there is "probably more snow on the hill at this point" since he can last remember.
"It's just gorgeous today," he said.
Recent warmer temperatures and additional snow have made for ideal skiing conditions, according to McKay.
But the cold weather this winter season has made for slow business overall.
"I would attribute the temperatures to the down days," McKay said.
Six-year-old Alex Tierney just learned to ski.
"It's really fun and I like to go off of the jumps," he said.
He's enjoying the fresh powder and warmer weather with his Dad, Adam.
"I was driving to work this morning, saw the snow piling up and said... this would be a great day for skiing," Adam explained.
He says he'd be okay with a couple more weeks of snow, but then it's time to make summer plans -- like water skiing.
The Tyrol Basin isn't the only place where cold weather had an impact.
Rob Walz from Cascade Mountain said that, although they had a very strong start to the season, business slowed down with colder temperatures.
Tyrol plans to remain open through the end of March.
