New snow and partly sunny skies

We received 1 to 2 inches of new snow last night on top. I skied Thomke’s this morning and was able to find some fresh snow. The wind blew the new snow around a bit, but there were some nice pockets. The sun came out and warmed things up giving us some spring conditions at lower elevations in the afternoon. Tomorrow we plan to have skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating, including Madonna II and Morse Highlands. The Madonna I Lift will be closed tomorrow to allow us more time to groom Upper FIS. We plan to have the Madonna I Lift open again on Wednesday. We will have 32 trails open tomorrow with terrain for all ability levels. 28 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Log Jam, McPherson’s, Playground, Lower Chilcoot, Smugglers’ Alley, Snake Bite, and Garden Path for a grand total of 115 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 6 to 40 inches. Currently, it is partly sunny and 27 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with a high of 38 degrees at the base and 24 degrees at higher elevations.
