    (NECN) - Bruce McCloy, the marketing director of Mount Sunapee Resort in New Hampshire, talked to NECN about the conditions on the mountain.

    McCloy said that the mountain got 9 to 10 inches of snow through Wednesday’s storm.

    “Today, it wasn’t windy. The snow was just coming down beautifully all day, and people just had a blast today on the mountain,” McCloy said.

    McCloy says that all 52 of the mountain’s snow making trails have been open since Christmas, which is about 90% of the terrain. The remainder of the trails are gladed, and they hope to open those after the next storm which is set to hit New England on Sunday.

    Additionally, he talked about how the 2013-2014 ski season has been more profitable than the previous year.

    “We’re getting some great snow; the skiing is fabulous right now. President’s Week is coming up, and then followed by New Hampshire holiday week, and the winter Olympics games- so three things are kind of converging that I think are really going to stimulate people to ski and ride, at least through the month of February,” McCloy explained.

    Lastly, McCloy talked about the additional features Mount Sunapee has to offer.
