WARREN, Vt. (AP) – A ski resort that suffered through a mild winter last year says it has settled its “lawsuit” against Mother Nature in exchange for a promise of 25 feet worth of snow during ski season.

“We are very happy with the way things turned out,” said Sugarbush Resort spokesman J.J. Toland. “We knew Ms. Nature had no interest in dragging out these proceedings, much less having them go before a jury.”

According to Toland, the ski resort had sought “unspecified damages for extreme emotional cruelty and mental anguish relating to Mother Nature’s lackluster performance during the 2005-06 season.”

But once Mother Nature agreed to provide 300 inches of snow during a five-month period beginning in November, the suit was settled, Toland said.
