End of November Wrap Up

November 30, 2022: As I take a moment to reflect on the last day of November, I feel as though it’s we’ve had a pretty good month overall. Typically, this time of year is known as the off-season (or the mud season to locals) since it can be cold and wet and winter hasn’t officially started. But, that’s not the case for us this year! Wisp Resort is already open for the ski and snowboard season with the tubing park also open! Also, have you heard, there is a new ice skating rink in the town of Grantsville this year? They’re open daily and the reservations are affordable.

The weather today will be rainy, with a slight chance of thunderstorms in the morning, then rain showers in the afternoon. Breezy, with highs in the lower 50s and a low of 20. Temperature falling into the mid-30s in the afternoon. South winds of around 15 to 20 mph, with gusts up to 40 mph, becoming west 20 to 25 mph, with gusts up to 50 mph in the afternoon. The chance of rain is near 100%.
