- The late April sun worked hard to melt snow away today. Many people welcomed the spring-like weather. But even some snow lovers were happy.Places like Watersmeet in the Upper Peninsula still have a foot and a half of snow. Chamber Officer Robert Zelinski wishes it didn't."Snowmobile trails aren't groomed and its been too warm, actually, to groom cross country ski trails also. So we've had all this wonderful April snow and haven't been able to use it," says Robert Zelinski, Watersmeet Chamber of Commerce Officer,
Snowshoers can still make use of the soft snow, but that's about it. Even with the late season snow, it hasn't helped Watersmeet much."Although we've had ideal conditions almost, the whole region has had a lot of snow. So that, that means that we don't get as much customers as we might get if we were the only place that had snow," says Robert Zelinski.Travel though the area during the winter months was difficult because of large snow depths.
