Just look at the hope hovering over Ski Mount Southington which had to shut down at the top of the week but put mountain crews to 24/7 work at the snow guns. Ski Sundown, one of the state's areas that lost Martin Luther King Jr. day to rain, hoped colder temps this week would keep things focused on the Eastern Mountain Sports Slopestyle event on Stinger on Saturday. Sunday comes the Winter Carnival at Sundown, with eats, music and more in a carnival-like atmosphere.
