Beavers Stay Busy At Ski Resort

Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.

OK. It's man versus beaver at a Canadian ski resort. Poley Mountain ski hill in New Brunswick uses water from a nearby pond to make snow, and the pond is home to a family of beavers, who dammed up the pipes in protest, we guess. Even after clearing those pipes out, the busy beavers just did it again. The resort will wait until spring to take on the rodents again. Happily for all, the resort has plenty of natural snow this year.
