The Warming Hut at the summit of Madonna received a face lift this past summer and is looking good!

Our Snowmakers were busy last night and today making snow on Upper Chilcoot. Weather permitting we plan to have the Madonna I Lift operating this weekend with Upper Chilcoot open. Tomorrow we plan to have skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating. We have 20 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. All 20 trails will be groomed for tomorrow for a grand total of 86 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machined groomed and variable with average base depths of 12 to 48 inches. The Riglet Park and Birch Run Terrain Park are both open. Currently, it is partly sunny and 25 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for a chance of rain with a high of 38 degrees.
