Suicide Six had to close shop Thursday due to rain and unseasonably high temperatures.
Heavy rains and temperatures in the high 40s have also caused ice james to break and high-water levels in the area.
“We just have a lot of standing water around,” said Suicide Six manager Chuck Vanderstreet. “We’re unable to groom.”
Also, a Woodstock Union High School alpine team meet scheduled for Thursday at Suicide Six was postponed to Feb. 4.
Suicide Six has had a rough week after below-zero temperatures and high winds last weekend kept skiers at home.
“It’s very disappointing, it really is,” Vanderstreet said. “Being in this business, you rely on Mother Nature to a certain extent.”
Temperatures are expected to drop below 20 degrees Thursday night and Vanderstreet plans for Suicide Six to be open again Friday.
Despite the recent poor weather, Vanderstreet says the resort has had a good year so far thanks to heavy Christmas and Martin Luther King Jr. Day weekend traffic.
