We received 2 inches of new snow overnight and 9 inches in the past 2 days. We are presently making snow on Upper Chilcoot and Waterfall. Today we plan to have skiing and riding on all 3 mountains. We plan to have the Madonna II Lift, Sterling Lift, Village Lift, Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, Morse Highlands Lift, and Sir Henry’s Glider all operating. We have 49 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 22 trails have been groomed for today, including Smugglers’ Alley, Lower Madonna Liftline, and Dixie’s Knoll for a grand total of 96 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are packed powder and machine groomed with average base depths of 6 to 26 inches. Currently, it is cloudy and 13 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 15 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for skies to become partly sunny with a high of 25 degrees at the base and 22 degrees at the summit of Sterling.
The Nordic Center is open with 15 km of snowshoeing and 10 km of cross-country skiing.
This weekend the featured beer for the apres sports parties at Bootlegger’s and the Black Bear Tavern is Labatts.
