  • The ski season is open at Wild Mountain in Chisago County, a sharp contrast to the water slides that were operating two weeks ago.
    Ski hill operators say Oct. 7 is the earliest start on record. A chilly start to October created the right conditions for the hill in Taylors Falls to begin making snow.
    Amy Frischmon tells KMSP-TV (http://tinyurl.com/8q2s64b ) as soon as it dips below freezing they have a crew ready to turn on the snow-making guns.
    Rebecca Selig is a Freeskiing World Championship 2009 winner. She was at Wild Mountain for a promotional event this weekend and says she was happy to hit the slopes so soon.
