Snow making on Upper FIS

Carving up Upper FIS

The temperatures dropped last night and snow making resumed on Upper FIS.  The cold temperatures allowed our snowmakers to produce some quality snow.  The snow making whales are covered with nice edgeable snow. Upper FIS was definitely the expert trail pick of the day.

I want to thank our snowmakers for a job well done!  The clear skies made for a beautiful sunny day and that was the calm before the storm. The forecast is calling for snow developing tonight 2 to 3 inches of accumulation possible. We could see up to 9 inches of new snow by Tuesday night.

Tonight we will also plan to make snow on McPherson’s and Lower Chilcoot.  We have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 5 lifts operating and 32 trails open. 21 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, that’s 120 acres of freshly groomed terrain.


Snow coming in


sterling with snow coming blogI took a cruiser run down Drifter this afternoon. I stopped a few times to take some photos of Sterling Pond and the Notch. I could see snow coming down in the distance. The further down the mountain I got, the closer it got. The forecast is calling for a few inches of new snow tonight with some flurries in the morning. The conditions are already really good and will only be better with a few more inches of the fresh stuff.


Blog fans from Long Island


long islandI was checking out Sterling Pond from a vantage point to see if the visibility was worthy of a photo. I suddenly heard someone hiking through the woods. It turned out to be some Smuggs family members from Long Island. They told me that they follow my blog and enjoy the Smuggs videos. It’s always nice to meet members of the Smuggs family. Have a safe trip home and we will see again soon.
