A little new snow

We received an inch of new snow on top overnight and 16 inches in the past 5 days. The new snow that we received last night was dense and skied well. My first run of the day was Smugglers’ Alley. It was groomed last night and with new snow on top just made it that much better. The mild temperatures today made for some soft conditions. The snow will be soft again tomorrow. Tomorrow we plan to have 3 lifts operating, Sterling Lift, Sir Henry’s Wonder Carpet, and Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift to mid-station. We have 24 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 12 to 48 inches. Tonight we plan to groom 8 out of the 24 trails, including Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 28 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Currently, it is foggy and 32 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for a chance of rain and sleet early becoming snow late in the day with temperatures falling down to 28 degrees by 5 pm.
