While having a snowmaking system powerful enough to provide October skiing, Woodbury ski area in Connecticut was forced to cancel its winter season. According to NBC Connecticut, refunds were sent to season passholders a few weeks ago.

The small chairlift served ski area has an arsenal of fan guns which allow it to open with minimal snowmaking hours. In December of 2016, Woodbury announced it had "delayed opening at this time due to lack of snowmaking water. This is a result of on going drought conditions in our area."

As of March 7, Litchfield County remains in a Drought Watch.

Despite not operating this winter, Woodbury plans to push forward. When reached for comment this week, General Manager Scott D'Amato replied, "we most definitely will be running next season."
