World Famous Cookie Race

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOne of the great things about the Cookie Race is that it lets the kids show what they have learned while studying at Snow Sport University. They can show off their turning skills to the cheering crowd as they race down the course. These brave racers are rewarded with a cookie at the finish line!

Lifts and Trails

We are 100 percent open. Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. We have all 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are packed powder and powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. We plan to groom 44 trails tonight, including Ruthie’s, Dixie’s Knoll, and Snake Bite for a grand total of 158 acres of freshly groomed terrain. We also plan to groom Jolly Rodger and Lower Black Bear tonight.

New Snow

We received 3 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 15 inches in the past week, and 303 inches this season so far!


Currently it is 25 degrees at the summit of Sterling with flurries and winds of 15  to 25 mph. Tonight’s forecast is calling for snow showers with an inch of accumulation possible. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly cloudy skies with temperatures between 14 and 30 degrees.
