Lift operation time change this Saturday, March 20

All 8 lifts will be open from 9:00 am till 5:00 pm this Saturday, March 20. This change will occur this Saturday only. The weather is going to be a little cool first thing on Saturday morning, but the temperature is going to rise quickly. This way you can sleep in a bit and still get to enjoy some great skiing and riding till 5:00 pm! Please tell your friends.

Today we had winter conditions at the higher elevations and spring conditions down low with some fog in between. We received a dusting of new snow on the upper mountains. I skied Upper FIS this morning. It was groomed last night and with the new snow on top made for some nice turns. Colder temperatures for tonight and tomorrow. The weekend is looking fantastic with sunny skies, temperatures reaching into the 40’s on Saturday and 50’s on Sunday.

Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 5 lifts operating, including the Madonna I Lift. We have 48 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are variable and machine groomed with base depths of 14 to 48 inches. 35 trails will be groomed, including Upper FIS, Drifter, Smugglers’ Alley, Ruthie’s, and Thomke’s for a grand total of 135 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Black Snake will be closed from the meadows down tomorrow for a GS race. Snake Bite, Jolly Rodger, and Full Nelson will also be closed during the race. The race should be finished sometime around noon. Currently, it is cloudy and 28 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with a high of 29 degrees.
