Snow Sport University Fun


Jonah having fun in the glades on Morse

I have been working as a helper for Snow Sport University this week.  Our group is between 4 and 6 years old. We started on Sir Henry’s Learning Hill on Monday morning.  We made sure we could all turn and stop before venturing onto the Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift. We then started with mid station runs on Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift. Yesterday we had a blast on the Magic Learning Trail, Wanderer, Lower Morse Liftline, and King Billy’s Bob Den. Today we did a warm up run to mid station before we headed to the top of the Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift.  We then skied around the world, which is Midway to Curley’s Cutback and then to Meadowlark. We also had a great time in Yellow Cat’s Lair and skiing the glades off the Magic Learning Trail. Tomorrow’s fun includes more runs before the World Famous Cookie Race on Sir Henry’s Learning Hill.


Taking time to reflect

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 packed powder and powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. We plan to groom 42 trails tonight, including Shuttle, Ruthie’s, Snow Snake, Wanderer, Smugglers’ Alley, and Hangman’s Drop.


Luke may have a snowy face, but he is in his happy place!


Currently it is 26 degrees with partly sunny skies and winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with increasing clouds and temperatures between 27 and 48 degrees.
