Florida’s first snow park is already dealing with its first issue: the lack of snow.

Snowcat Ridge officials say they now have to limit hours because they underestimated how much snow they’ll need and they need time to make more.

The snow park in Dade City, 40 minutes north of Tampa, opened Nov. 20. It includes a 400-foot-long snow slope, an Alpine village, and a children’s igloo.

If you bought tickets for the time the park is closed, you’ll get a full refund.
