For many Northland kids, Monday's five inches of fresh powder started off their week-long winter break.

"We have the whole break off!" said Cassandra Franzen, a 12-year-old ski cadet at Chester Bowl.

It seems sometimes Mother Nature has impeccable timing.

"We're just skiing and going off jumps and having fun," said Carter Zupancich, who goes to Lincoln Park Middle School.

Kids were out hitting the slopes at Chester Bowl and Spirit Mountain. There was also quite the line at the tubing hill, too.

They all seemed to be enjoying the 20 degrees above zero. Some would maybe say they are making up for lost time.

"Snow is crazy, but I love snow," said Franzen, who also goes to Lincoln Park Middle School.

Sunday, Duluth broke yet another weather record. This winter we've had 60 days below zero. It has kept folks off the icy slopes and inside.

Spirit Mountain has closed or closed early more than a handful of times due to the chilly temps.

Gabe Fossum goes to Lincoln Park Middle School. He and his friends are kicking off their break doing some tricks, but this winter hasn't been ideal for them.

"There's a lot of snow, but it's kind of cold," said Zupancich, Fossum's friend.

They only like the cold for one reason.

"I like it when we get school off!" said Fossum.

Fossum said they've missed about seven days this school year due to weather, but they still want more snow.
