Members of Team NordicSkiRacer have been betting on when the main man-made snow pile at Huron Meadows Metropark will melt. As of today, April 15, it looks like it has a long way to go. Says Ken Roth, "The stick in the picture is 48 inches high, so the snow pile is standing about 7-8 feet high and easily 30+ feet long. What's even more impressive is that the surface temperature as shown on the handheld thermometer is still radiating well below freezing. I'm no expert on these things, but I think that bodes well for those who bet long."
