Cannonsburg Ski Area opens for season

PLAINFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — It is opening weekend at the popular Cannonsburg Ski Area in Kent County. 

Cannonsburg is among one of the last slopes to open in Michigan this year because of the unseasonably warm temperatures. 

Skiers and snowboarders alike were happy Saturday to get back on the hill and enjoy the winter fun despite the warmer temps.

“The snow conditions are great. Nice and soft. It’s manmade snow, but it has a really good grip. It’s not icy at all. (It’s) really fun,” said Jacob Jacques, Faction Skis representative
