Happy April No Fooling



Summit of Sterling

The month of April has started off very nicely with fresh snow and sunshine!  The cooler temperatures last night made the new snow light and fluffy.  The wind moved the snow around a little and I was able to find some sweet drifts to play in.  The new snow moving around also filled in the low spots and in between the bumps.  The new snow will also be really nice mixed in on the groomers for tomorrow!



The snowpack is so deep our snow gauge is buried

New Snow

We received 4 inches of new snow last night, 5 inches in the past 2 days, and 275 inches this season so far.

Lifts and Trails

Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 4 lifts operating, including the Madonna I lift. We plan to have 61 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and packed powder with average base depths of 18 to 48 inches. We plan to groom 36 trails tonight, including Drifter, Snow Snake, and Bootlegger for a grand total of 125 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Morse Mountain will close after April 7th.


Are you ready to do some skimming on April 6th? Construction of the pond started today.


Currently it is sunny and 16 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 15 to 25 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with temperatures between 20 and 45 degrees.
