TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

With a warm winter and little snow fall, some shop owners inSummerhaven say business has been extremely slow.

Rachel Zimmerman has been helping run The Cookie Cabin foryears. Zimmerman says business is down 40 percent this year.

Zimmerman says business did pick up during the three-dayPresidents Day weekend: "We've actually had a steady streamof people coming in today, so it's helping us out. We're 40 percentlower than what we normally get."

Over at Ski Valley, which normally has snow for skiers thistime of year, only has a few small patches of the white stuff.

Ski Valley workers say they are trying other ways to boostbusiness because this season has been extremely slow.

Lois Altherr spent part of her Monday visitingSummerhaven said she doesn't mind the lack of snow.

"We prefer not to have thesnow," she said. "We didn't come up for that reason. We came up for the pizza, actually, andwe make this trek frequently with our family as well when we can get away withit."

Folks running the shops in Summerhaven say they are lookingforward to the summer season and hope they can make up for business then.
