Snowmaking continues on Morse

We are presently making snow on the Magic Learning Trail, Riglet Park, and Lower Morse Liftline. Currently it is 12 degrees at the summit of Sterling with clear skies and winds of 0 to 5 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for sunny skies with a high of 20 degrees. Today we plan to have the Sterling Lift and Sir Henry’s Glider operating with 5 intermediate trails, 1 beginner trail, and 1 expert trail open. All 7 trails have been groomed for today that’s a grand total of 24 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and packed powder with average base depths of 18 to 48 inches.

  1. Hi Hugh,

    We met last year as we cruised up the Village Lift together when I was vacationing with my family. I’m originally from CO and It was fun to hear you talk all about the snowmaking process. We’re due to come up again from our home in DE tomorrow, 12/19, but we are a little bummed with the snow report and that so little trails are open on Morse and Madonna (we are staying in Evergreens). What’s your take on the week? Looks like you have already opened 3 additional trails on Sterling just in the last couple days. I know y’all are hard at work. Unfortunately, with COVID, there is very little to do in the area except ski and hike. I called a couple of days ago and the ice rink and day time tubing aren’t an option as of yet. We have 3 teenage boys who would love to head up to VT and be active. What’s your take? THANK YOU! Jaidy

    • Hello Jaidy,
      We have been making snow on Lower Morse Liftline and Garden Path recently. We plan to open Lower Morse Liftline on Monday. We plan to start making snow on Madonna Mountain on Tuesday night on Mulcahy’s Link and Lower Madonna Liftline. I believe tubing is now open next to the Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift.
      Happy Holidays,
