We have 6 lifts operating today, including the Madonna I lift. 70 out of 78 trails are open with terrain for all ability levels. 35 trails have been groomed for today, including Smugglers’ Alley that’s a grand total of 135 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Trail pick of the day for experts is Upper FIS. I just skied it and had a blast. Tuesday night our snowmaking crew took advantage of the colder temperatures and made some great snow. The tower snowguns make snowmaking whales that are wide, because they cover a larger area. Speaking of snow we are expecting up to 12 inches of new snow Friday night into Saturday night. This weekend we have the FREE Family Fun Race. Who’s the fastest in your family? Find out on our timed race course sponsored by HearthStone Stoves! 11:00 am – 2:00 pm on Lower Madonna Liftline. This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday the Black Bear Tavern Après Sport Party is featuring Stella Artois. The party starts at 2:00 pm with live music from Jammin’ Sam.
