Beautiful sunny afternoon

The Madonna I Lift
Amazing views from the summit of Madonna
Upper Chilcoot just above the top of Waterfall

Today started off with cloudy skies and ended up with bluebird skies! The Madonna I Lift opened for the season today. I rode Madonna I this morning and the summit was in cloud cover. It was great to be skiing from the top of Madonna, but I was missing the great views. The clouds cleared out by lunchtime and I headed back up the Madonna I Lift. Once I got to the summit I did not want to ski down. I just wanted to soak up the sunshine and 360-degree views.

Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 7 lifts operating, including Madonna I. We have 22 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. All 22 trails will be groomed for tomorrow for a grand total of 92 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 12 to 48 inches. We are presently making snow on Upper FIS. Currently, it is sunny and 25 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 0 to 5 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies early with increasing clouds and a high of 32 degrees. Happy Holidays!
