LAKE PLACID, N.Y. (AP) - Lake Placid’s stately Mirror Lake Inn has its own antidote for the mild Adirondack Mountain winter - it’s making its own snow.

The resort has purchased four snow guns because the winter has seen so little snow.

November and December were among the warmest months on record in Lake Placid. Although some snow fell in January, warm, wet weather early last week melted a lot of the snow on the ground.

The Mirror Lake Inn had never made snow until this winter. Owner Ed Weibrecht (WHY-breckt) decided to start doing it in December for Christmas and created a sledding hill for the inn’s guests. The inn’s grounds had the only snow in the village.

Conditions at nearby Whiteface Mountain remain good, thanks to a significant base made last month.
