Penguins can’t fly, but they ski with a smile


We received 3 to 4 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 7 inches in the past 2 days, and 329 inches this season so far!

Lifts and Trails

We are 99 percent open. Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating, including the Madonna I lift. We have 77 out of 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. The Black Hole, Freefall, and Madonna Liftline are open from the traverse on Upper FIS. Surface conditions are powder and packed powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. We plan to groom 42 trails tonight, including Ruthie’s, Playground, Snow Snake, Wanderer, Thomke’s, and Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 156 acres of freshly groomed terrain.


Currently it is snowing and 24 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for a chance of a snow shower early then partly sunny skies later with temperatures between 12 and 27 degrees.
