ZANESFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) – The temperatures are finally cold enough for Mad River Mountain to fire up the snowmaking machines.

Snowmaking began again Thursday night and continues Friday.  Mad River Mountain says there are chances for full-day snowmaking Saturday and Sunday as well.

According to the Mad River Mountain website, they are prepared to use all the water they have collected in the snow making pond with over 130 high-powered snowmaking guns.

Opening Day on the mountain is not here yet, but they say to watch their website for the announcement about when the slopes will be open to the public.

You can watch a live camera of snowmaking activity here.

Mad River Mountain says whatever snow they do make will stay untouched through the Christmas week warm up in an effort to preserve the snowpack. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
