Rick Karlin reports at Capitol Confidential that it has been so cold locally it has actually been bad for the ski resorts. Windham Mountain cancelled Friday and Saturday night skiing, and one of their upper lifts shut down temporarily because of the heavy winds. Windham's Adventure Park also closed Jan. 5, and will closed early at Jan. 6. Hunter Mountain reports that, "Due to cold temperatures Hunter West will be closed [Jan. 5] as well as our Tubing Park. Tubing will resume with shortened hours [Jan. 6]." Catamount Ski in Columbia County also stopped weekend night skiing, "due to very cold wind chills under nighttime conditions."
