Today’s weather was cloudy skies with flurries early in the day. Then partly sunny skies with warmer temperatures. Most of Morse Mountain was spring conditions. The upper mountains softened on the bottom half. The groomed terrain softened up nicely. I snowboarded this morning on Morse and skied in the afternoon on the upper mountains. Smugglers’ Alley was a bunch of fun today. Black Snake was in the sun this afternoon and it softened up for some nice turns.
Weather permitting tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 7 lifts operating, including the Madonna I Lift. We plan to have 40 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 14 to 52 inches. We should see spring conditions tomorrow, especially at lower elevations. 34 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Snow Snake, Playground, and Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 132 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Currently, it is partly cloudy and 28 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies, rain, and breezy with a high of 44 degrees. Some lifts may be on wind hold tomorrow. Please check the report in the morning for the latest information.
