MUSKEGON, Mich. (WZZM) -- After waiting more than a month, visitors packed into the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex on Saturday.
The complex has not been this significantly delayed since the late 1990's.
Lugers lined up for a trip down the freshly groomed slopes, while others warmed up by the fire following hours of cross-country skiing.
Many visiting Saturday said they kept pushing back their plans to visit the Winter Sports Complex because of the lack of snow. It took only 48-hours for that to change.
"We've had sliders from all over the midwest out there today", said Jim Rudicil, executive director of the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex. "The folks that made reservations out there months ago online, so it's great being able to present the facility to them."
