It looks like winter fun will come early to the City of Utica's Val Bialas  Sports Center. Although the official start of winter isn't until Tuesday the 21st the Dan Miner of the Utica Observer Dispatch says that J. Mark Ford, operator of the center, is planning to open this Sunday.

“We’re making snow like crazy,” Ford said. “We’ve got all the features done and now we’ve just got to have some snow on the hill.”

Judging from the upcoming forecast there will plenty of the white stuff on that hill by the weekend
