Cold Weather Cash
An area in western North Carolina famous for its great skiing is looking at one of its busiest weekends of the year.
Business owners in Maggie Valley are loving the snow we've already seen this week and the snow and cold weather in the forecast.
They say folks are pouring in to buy hats, gloves, coats, and other cold weather gear. That's good news after slower than expected sales in December.
Bob DeWeese, Skis & Tees, "well we didn't have a great Christmas so we're really counting on January to pull us through, we need a lot of cold weather, then the mountain would be fantastic and bring in a lot of people from out of town."
The upcoming 3-day Martin Luther King holiday weekend is traditionally one of the busiest ski weekends of the year at Cataloochee and other area ski resorts.
