The unseasonably warm temperatures have delayed the opening for skiing and snowboarding at Winter Park, as well as the start of the regular season.

The county Promotion & Recreation Department announced Friday that the park will be open for snow tubing only from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday (Dec. 27) and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday (Dec. 28).

“We are expecting rain this weekend, which will further deteriorate ideal conditions for recreational activities,” the announcement continued. “We hope to make more snow next week and open the entire park as soon possible. We ask that visitors be patient, as we cannot control the weather and we are doing the very best to open for the regular season.”

People interested in visiting Winter Park can call the 24/7 Kewaunee County Promotion & Recreation hotline at 920-388-7199.
