Snow-related businesses stay optimistic that snow will come


Those new Christmas skis and snowmobile gear are probably still sitting by the tree, waiting to be tried out.

There's no snow in west central Minnesota or most anywhere else in the state. For people whose businesses depend on having snow in the winter, it's been a quiet season so far.

It could be a little while yet. Forecasts for the Tribune area don't hold the promise of measurable snow for the next week.
