DETROIT LAKES, Minn. - Our weather turned more like winter this week, and nobody is happier than the fans of Detroit Mountain.

The snow-making machines are working around the clock at the resort.

The conditions are best in the evening, since temperatures next week during the day will be above freezing.

With snow being made, plans are to open Detroit Mountain on what they call White Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

"Ideal temps, 25 degrees and low humidity. It is turning out alright. It has been for 24 hours and we have white on the ground, so that is good," Tony Schmitz said.

Those who work with Minnesotans who seek abortions say barriers, both legal and practical, forced some to travel to Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Washington, D.C., and Wisconsin even prior to the Supreme Court’s decision.
