Maybe Ohiopyle should've called in Mark Duda for their canceled Winterfest--he apparently has a pretty good snow machine that got the attention of The Weather Channel.
Duda's been working on snow machines since he was 16, which is about as long as I've been trying to figure out a way I can hibernate for the winter. If this winter hadn't been so warm, he might've gotten a good bit of homemade snow out of it, but alas, homemade snow needs certain conditions to come about. But that means that last year, he was able to make snow until May--which isn't surprising to me, since that was about the time I was heading up to the mountains for the weekends and finding everything still bare and dead.
But Duda's been able to make some pretty impressive snowy hills, the tallest being 30 feet high. So, skiers who haven't been able to get their fix this winter, make friends with Duda.
Or maybe he should just start charging admission.
