Mount Crescent Ski Area improving under county's ownership
In its first season open under Pottawattamie County ownership, Mount Crescent Ski Area is looking forward to another great season. Kylie Gumpert with the Pottawattamie County Department of Conservation said they've been focused on improving the experience, which means more snow. Four new snow machines were purchased by the county, making it possible to reopen ski trails that had been closed to skiers for a decade. Maintenance technician Dan Borgaila said the machines pump as much as 200 PSI of water up the hill at a few gallons per minute.
