McGaheysville, Va. (WHSV) -- The cold weather means good business for Massanutten Resort. The resort is already into its full season and they are offering some new opportunities this season. In addition to skiing and tubing, they're also offering zip lining through the winter season.
In 2012, they didn't open until Christmas Eve. Managers say opening up almost a month earlier has given them a lot more business.
They've already had people sign up for double the amount of season passes. Plus, this year ten slopes are open compared to just three slopes last year.
"Participation is definitely up, I think enthusiasm is really good this year starting off because you know we've already had a couple of natural snows and that's what brings them out," said Steven Showalter, with Massanutten Resort.
Managers at the resort hope to open four more slopes around Christmas, when kids go on winter break.
