Not everyone hates arctic weather... Winterplace skiers love it

RALEIGH COUNTY -

While most people don't enjoy below-freezing temperatures, for those in Flat Top it's just what the doctor ordered.

Winterplace Manager Tom Peterson explained to 59 News on Wednesday that these weather conditions are perfect for him and his customers.

We asked a skier how she felt about being out for hours on end in the arctic conditions.

"It's beautiful. I think they said its 11 degrees. But it doesn't feel like 11 degrees. The suns out, it makes it feels nice. A little windy, but I'm bundled up so I'm good," said Debra Boles of Cookeville, Tennessee.

To stay warm in the frigid cold, Boles dresses with 4 layers on the top half of her body and 3 layers on the bottom, as well as scarves, hats and gloves.
