Ski area helping supply snow to lakeshore

MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) - The Winter Sports Complex in Muskegon County is brown, as is most of West Michigan. But after a few phone calls and pleas for help the park's luge track will be open this weekend.

Cannonsburg Ski Area offered the park two huge loads of snow. Tuesday morning the delivery was made.

"White gold is what we call it," says Jim Rudicil.

Without the imported snow, 300 luge reservation for this weekend would have been canceled. Cannonsburg has dozens of snow making machines. 45 yards of the white stuff was offered to the Winter Sports Complex at no charge.

"If we are able to help out and do it to help the winter sports vibe, then we are happy to do it," says John Losey of the Cannonsburg Ski Area.

Muskegon County tourism leaders had made an extra effort this year to attract riders to the luge track with billboards around the state. But the push for visitors made the lack of snow even more stressful for Rudicil.

Now we're learning both companies owe taxes and they did not follow through on promises made to the state.

The newest road in Oceana County runs from U.S. 31 to Rothbury Steel. The Michigan Department of Transportation spent more than $2 million to rebuild Winston Road.

The grant money was to directly help the company get trucks hauling heavy parts to the interstate. In return Rothbury Steel told MDOT as many as 200 new jobs would be the byproduct of road improvements.
