Ski hills open for business in southeast Wisconsin

KEWASKUM -- No snow, at least none that's stuck to the ground yet. But if you head to the ski slopes, there's plenty of man-made snow for you to enjoy. That means one thing - ski season has arrived.

The colder it gets, the more snow Sunburst ski hill can make. This past week where it has been 20 degrees or so, they've been able to make 15 inches of snow by using 50 million gallons of water!

Even though places like Sunburst admit December isn't the peak time, business is expected to be steady as long as it stays cold out. They pick up business as soon as the holidays come to a close.

Sunburst says it doesn't use "fake snow." It is REAL snow that's just man-made out of a pressurized machine.
