If you build it they will come



The view from above

Mike McAdoo and Arlo Pouliot have been very busy the past few days moving snow around in the Zone Terrain Park. First, they removed all the rails from the park and then they starting pushing. This winter we made some big piles of snow in the upper half of the Zone. They were left there to be used at a later date, well that time has come. Mike has been pushing the snow down from the upper half of the Zone to the pond. Arlo has been using the winch cat to push the snow up from the lower half of the Zone to the pond.  All of their hard work is paying off, because the pond is looking great! The 9th Annual Pond Skimming, Chillin’ & Grillin’ Tailgate Party is this Saturday, April 6th!



The Pond is really starting to take shape

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 have 57 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 18 to 48 inches. We plan to groom 39 trails tonight, including Drifter, Smugglers’ Alley, and Snow Snake for a grand total of 134 acres of freshly groomed terrain.

Currently it is partly sunny and 20 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 15 to 30 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for sunny skies early with increasing clouds, a chance of snow/rain late in the day and temperatures between 22 and 41 degrees.
