Harvey’s Hideaway

 

tom blogToday was another beautiful spring day with sunshine and a high of 53 degrees. Every trail on Sterling is open and in fantastic condition. We have deep base depths and great coverage. There is some great spring skiing and riding to be had out there. This weekend we plan to have both the Madonna I lift and Sterling lift operating. Pictured here is Tom enjoying the soft spring bumps.

2nd Annual Pond Skimming

 

mogul mouse blogToday was all about having fun and celebrating spring. Wild costumes, barbeque grills, and people trying to skim 100 feet across water! The 2nd Annual Pond Skimming was a great time with a jump and a longer pond this year. 100 people attempted to make it across the icy water on alpine skis, snowboards, airboards, cross country skis, a monoboard, ski blades, and even a kayak. Mogul Mouse and Rockin’ Ron the Friendly Pirate went Pond Skimming too. I want to thank our Elvis impersonating Life Guard / Ski Patroller Lee Anderson for wading in the cold water to save those who did not make it across the pond! I also want to thank all the Smuggs employees who made this wonderful event possible.

Getting groovy

 

groovyThe spring skiing and riding is fantastic. The groomed trails were nice this morning. I did a cruiser on Upper Chilcoot carving some GS turns. I could feel the snow getting softer as I worked my way down the mountain. I ran into Mike McAdoo from Smuggs Terrain Parks a.k.a. Gravity Control and he was inspecting the pond he built. The 2nd Annual Pond Skimming is tomorrow Saturday, April 5. He told me that this year’s pond is even longer than last year’s. The event starts at noon and spectators are welcome.
