Partly sunny to dumping in no time

It went from spring back to winter today. The thermometer hit 50 degrees at the base earlier today. The temperature fell throughout the day. The temperature at the base is now 21 degrees. We had partly sunny skies most of the day. It clouded up quickly after 3 pm and that’s when it started to snow. We could see an inch of accumulation by tomorrow morning. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with a high of 15 degrees at the base and 9 degrees at higher elevations. Friday’s forecast is periods of snow with up to 11 inches of accumulation possible. If you were out on the slopes today make sure to get all your gear dry for tomorrow. Damp gloves or boots will not be much fun tomorrow. Our grooming staff will be busy tonight getting the slopes looking their best for tomorrow. They will concentrate their efforts on Sterling, Morse, and trails accessed from the Madonna II Lift. The Madonna I Lift will be closed tomorrow and we plan to reopen it on Friday. We need extra time to groom Upper FIS and Upper Chilcoot. Tomorrow we plan to have 6 lifts operating; Village, Sterling, Mogul Mouse’s Magic, Morse Highlands, Sir Henry’s Glider, and Madonna II. The Village Lift and Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift will open at 8:30 am tomorrow and Friday morning. We have 29 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. More trails will be open this weekend. All 29 trails will be groomed for tomorrow for a grand total of 120 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and loose granular with average base depths of 12 to 46 inches.

Snowmaking resumes tonight on Garden Path, Midway, Meadowlark, and Lower Morse Liftline.

Uphill Travel: All 3 mountains are close to uphill traffic due to snowmaking and grooming operations.
