Tonight’s forecast is calling for snow showers with 2 to 4 inches of accumulation possible. Currently, it is cloudy and 20 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies becoming sunny in the afternoon, and breezy with a high of 20 degrees at the base and 13 degrees at the summit. Bundle up and enjoy the new snow! Last night we made snow on Dixie’s Knoll, Midway, Meadowlark, Lower Morse Liftline, Sam’s Run, and Magic Learning Trail. Tonight we plan to make snow on Lower Chilcoot, Mulcahy’s Link and the S turn above Waterfall. Tomorrow we plan to have the Sterling Lift, Village Lift, Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, and Sir Henry’s Glider all operating. We will have 16 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. All 16 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 72 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine-groomed and variable with average base depths of 8 to 24 inches.
Uphill travel is presently closed on all 3 mountains due to grooming and snowmaking operations. We plan to reopen Morse Mountain to uphill travel at its regular evening hours later this week. Stay tuned for more information.
This weekend the featured beer for the apres sports parties at Bootlegger’s and the Black Bear Tavern is Fiddlehead.
