Foggy start but the sun came out

 

The summit of Sterling

It set up last night for the first time in the past 3 nights. Our groomers were out last night working their magic on the trails. I am glad they did because this morning those were the trails of choice. The snow really softened up by the afternoon and I was skiing Hangman’s Drop and Chute. Tomorrow is going to more of the same with warmer temperatures and mostly sunny skies and a high of 48 degrees. Tomorrow we plan to have the Madonna lift and Sterling lift operating with 35 trails open for intermediates and intermediates. 14 trails will be groomed for tomorrow that is 55 acres of freshly groomed terrain. More warm weather is in the forecast for this weekend with a high of 54 degrees on Saturday and 68 degrees on Sunday.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. This could be one of those legendary ski days. Sunshine is in the forecast all day long, temps will range from 56 -67 degrees, and we have excellent snow coverage. Tell your boss that the Eye Doctor says he can’t see you coming in to work today.

Beautiful Sunshine and Spring Conditions

 

Upper Madonna Liftline open from the top

Today was just perfect with blue bird skies and spring conditions. I took a run on Drifter this morning just to take in all the amazing views. It was groomed last night and skiing was great. The temperatures continued to rise all day long with some great spring conditions. Everything was soft and skiing great! Tomorrow is going to be a repeat of today except even warmer with mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 55 and 67. Tonight we plan to groom 14 trails that is 60 acres of freshly groomed terrain. The Madonna I lift and Sterling lift will be operating with 63 trails open for experts and intermediates.
