Great Bear General Manager Dan Grider said, "We went from famine to feast" as mother nature packed a much-needed snowy punch and drew large crowds on Monday.

Most area schools cancelled classes on Monday which also helped fuel the throngs of snow lovers.

As for the tubing hill, the Great Bear website has a target opening date of January 19.
