MANSFIELD, Ohio (WOIO) - Mansfield’s Snow Trails will start making snow Thursday night.

The temperatures will drop to about 29 degrees. This will be the earliest that Snow Trails has started making snow. The previous record for the earliest snow making was Nov. 13, 2014.

For Snow Trails, the snow making usually begins around Thanksgiving. They have their sights on for Opening Day in early December.

“Preparations for another fantastic winter season for our guests prioritizes early pre-season snowmaking,” said Nate Wolleson marketing manager at Snow Trails. “Getting a jump on stockpiling is the goal. When we’re into November and see a window of downward trending temps looking consistent for a few nights, and more to come in the following week, we call-in the crew to take advantage of it."

Snow Trails is going to take advantage of the cool air. You can watch the snow making here through their webcam.
