Today was pretty amazing with the fresh snow and sunshine.  This morning we had 74 trails open and the only closed trails were our double and triple black diamond. Ski Patrol did some trail checking and then the ropes dropped. We were 100 percent open today. Freefall is open from the traverse on Upper FIS. Upper Madonna Liftline is open from Catwalk down to the Robin’s Run work road. Robin’s Run and the Black Hole are both open. It was a fantastic day filled with powder turns and smiles. I look forward to doing it all over again tomorrow!

New Snow

We received 3 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 15 inches in the past 2 days, and 288 inches this season so far!

Lifts and Trails

Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 7 lifts operating, including the Madonna I lift. We have 77 out of 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are powder and packed powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. 36 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, that’s a grand total of 144 acres of freshly groomed terrain.


Waterfall will be closed on Friday due to snowmaking.


Great conditions


Currently it is partly sunny and 14 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for snow showers with 3 to 5 inches of accumulation possible and temperatures between 24 to 38 degrees.
