What a snowy, wintery weekend we had! It snowed and blew all weekend. I guess spring is a ways off yet. It should make the skiers happy. Cottonwood Butte Ski Area was open last weekend and with the new snow, they will probably be open this weekend also. Operating hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., on Saturday and Sunday.
