Snow Means Big Business For Muskegon Winter Sports Complex

MUSKEGON, Mich– The snow is some much-needed relief for a business that relays on it to survive.

“We were greatly concerned we would have another horrible year,” Mark Jastrzembski, president of Muskegon Winter Sports Complex said.

Jastrzembski says this year has been pretty good for the Muskegon Winter Sports Complex, despite the late start to the season.

“We’ve closed too many days. We’ve lost about three weeks and the season is only about 8 weeks. So, hopefully we get one more great week and the weather reports are a little iffy after that,” Jastrzembski said.

They have just about every winter sport covered at the complex, but one of their biggest attractions is their ice luge track.

“The ice on the luge track will really hold up. We’ll put thermal blankets over that thing over night. We can get into the 40′s and 50′s and still run our luge clinic,” Jastrzembski said.

Their ice luge track attracts people from all over the country, making it very important for crews to get it up and running. They just need the right weather conditions to make it happen.

“Two or three great weekends and we can make our money to keep operations going. This is a total non-profit operation and nobody is paid. These are all volunteer workers out here,” Jastrzembski said.
