"Anything I did wrong or reckless last year, I can start over this year and make it better," said Johnson.
Colder weather is also good news for Hidden Valley Ski Resort. Skiers, snowboarders and snow-tubers can visit Hidden Valley Friday when the resort opens at 9a.m. The resort hoped to open before Christmas but temperatures were not cold enough to make snow.
'You got a lot of people who do enjoy skiing and snowboarding and they`ll have the new equipment they want to try and we`re here for them,' said general manager Bill Brandes. 'Our snow makers made the monumental effort, but they put enough snow down to get the opening in.'
