Extreme Challenge

Athletes doing trail inspection

We had the best conditions that we have ever had for the Extreme Challenge today. The snow was perfect with a nice deep base. Today’s competition was on Madonna Liftline from mid-station down to Lower Madonna Liftline. Tomorrow’s competition will be on the Headwall. I am very excited about all the wild action there will be on the Headwall tomorrow! The competition starts at 11:00 am tomorrow morning. Spectators are welcome. You can watch the action from where Red Fox Glades cuts across Madonna Liftline above mid-station. The best place to see the competition is from the Madonna I Lift.

We are 100 percent open with top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. We plan to have all 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are powder and packed powder with average base depths of 20 to 60 inches. 34 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including McPherson’s, Snow Snake, and Jolly Rodger for a grand total of 138 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Currently it is 6 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with a high of 24 degrees.
