March snow welcomed by skiers
BRIDGTON (WGME) -- Skiers are definitely calling Wednesday’s storm a blessing. Wall to wall powder at Shawnee Peak could mean a longer ski season than expected. Officials here call this the snowiest winter in 3 years, and the snow making guns are taking an extended vacation.
The season is scheduled to end March 30, but staff at Shawnee Peak say they've got the snow to extend it if there are enough skiers who still want to hit the slopes.
