Spring Fever

People wearing fun outfits, smiles, goggle tans, warm temperatures, sunshine, and spring conditions! I started the day off with a few cruisers on Chilcoot, Link, Lower Madonna Liftline, Drifter, Shuttle, and Treasure. I headed for soft bumps next on Doc Dempsey’s and Upper FIS. I even spotted the leprechaun on Morse Mountain.

Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating, including Morse Highlands and Madonna I. We have 60 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 22 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Chilcoot, Rumrunner, Treasure Run, Garden Path, Log Jam, and Lower Morse Liftline for a grand total of 92 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are spring conditions and machine groomed with average base depths of 14 to 48 inches. Birch Run Terrain Park is open with 3 jumps and 6 rails. Currently, it is sunny and 51 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 10 to 15 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for a slight chance of light rain early then skies becoming mostly sunny with a high of 52 degrees at the base and 44 degrees at higher elevations. Temperatures do not go below freezing tonight, so expect more spring conditions tomorrow.
