Tomorrow, March 4th, the Smugglers’ Notch Ski and Snowboard Club hosts this exciting event – an opportunity for junior and adult freeskiers and riders to show their big mountain skiing on the most difficult terrain the East has to offer. Spectators are not allowed on the trail but will be treated to an amazing birds-eye view from Madonna I lift.
We have 54 skiable trails and 38 lift-accessible trails open tomorrow. The Sterling Lift will be closed Thursday, March 4th and Friday, March 5th for a mechanical repair. If you park in Parking Lot 1 you can ski or ride back to your vehicle by taking Shuttle, Crossover, Treasure Run, Lower Exhibition, and the Practice Slope.
Tomorrow we plan to have 5 lifts operating; Madonna I, Madonna II, Village, Mogul Mouse’s Magic, and Sir Henry’s Glider. 32 trails will be groomed for tomorrow including Snow Snake and Shuttle for a grand total of 128 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are packed powder and machine groomed with base depths of 16 to 50 inches. We received 6 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours, 11 inches in the past 5 days, and 184 inches this season so far. Currently, it is snowing and 21 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for sunny skies early with increasing clouds and a chance of light snow later in the afternoon, breezy, and a high of 18 degrees. Bundle up and enjoy the wonderful conditions.
Sterling Mountain will be open to uphill traffic tomorrow during the day. Please stay off of Treasure Run, Lower Rumrunner, Crossover, and Lower Exhibition when ascending due to downhill traffic.
