While having dinner with some friends, someone mentioned Snow Creek. I told my husband that we should go up there sometime and see what it is like. So, with all the snow cleared from the highways but still covering the ground, we head for Weston, Missouri to check out the closest ski area to Kansas City. What we found were three ski lifts up to the side of a natural bluff covered with real snow. That day there were five busloads of school kids on an outing, so the lines were fairly long to get on the lift, although it seems to go pretty quickly.
