Snowmaking and corduroy

Last night we made snow on Morse Mountain. All 16 trails have been groomed for today, including Smugglers’ Alley for a grand total of 72 acres of freshly groomed terrain. We received a dusting of new snow overnight and 6 inches in the past 3 days. Currently, it is cloudy and 18 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies early becoming partly sunny with a chance of a snow shower late in the day a high of 31 degrees at the base and 21 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Today we have Sterling Lift, Village Lift, Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, and Sir Henry’s Glider all operating. We have terrain open for all ability levels with 16 trails open. Surface conditions are machine-groomed and variable with average base depths of 8 to 24 inches. Tonight’s forecast is calling for snow showers with 1 to 3 inches of accumulation possible.

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.
