Mother Nature did not cooperate this holiday season to bring in lots of tourists.  Alana Hughson with the Central Oregon Visitors Association say the final numbers are in and business was down about 10% from last Christmas. “It was certainly a mixed bag. Over Christmas to no one's surprise due to the shortage of snow and the unseasonably warm temperatures, those who came to Central Oregon for the supreme ski experience were disappointed and it played havoc with our early booking. We did manage to salvage the final weekend. A storm moved in, sunny skies and so it was a strong new years weekend.” Hughson says they are gearing up for a strong spring break, where they hope to recoup some of their losses.
