CLYMER, N.Y. — It doesn’t really see like we’ve had much of a winter as temperatures keep rising and falling.

That trend is making for an expensive ski season at Peek’n Peak ski resort.

So far this year, crews have used an additional $25 million of water to make snow through the resort’s 300 snow guns.
 
That has allowed the slopes to stay open, and with a two more days of snow making planned this week, the resort can keep the lifts running into early April.

“We’re ahead of last year,” owner Nick Scott said. “We expect to ski into the first week of April, and we don’t think after this next 48 hours of snow making that we’ll have to make any more snow.”

The weather was less kind to Edinboro’s Mount Pleasant Resort, which is already closed for the season.
