AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- It's not all basketball this week. Some vacation kids are tearing up the slopes for February Vacation.

The Lost Valley Ski Area in Auburn is staying open until 9pm every night during February break.

Dan Labrie has managed Lost Valley Ski Area for 25 years and says despite the rain on Tuesday, this weeks numbers are excellent for February Vacation. "A week like this where we just got slammed with snow a week or two ago... It brings the people out," says Labrie.

Thursday night was busy with their weekly ski-race down the mountain, but school vacation brought an addition hundred people.

"I just learned how to ski today and we're already here so it's awesome," says Kali Beaulie.

Racers are carving out the slope called Big Buck, but
14 other trails are open at Lost Valley. Labrie says the mountain at Lost Valley Ski Area stays open until mid-March.
