Morse Mountain Fun

Today I went skiing then snowboarding and then skiing again. I skied on Madonna in the morning. Drifter and Upper FIS were groomed last night. I had a blast on both of them. I then grabbed my snowboard and headed for Morse Mountain. This afternoon I switched back to skis. We made snow on Snow Snake last night and it was groomed this morning. I had to check out Snow Snake after the recent snowmaking. It was fantastic and I had to ski it twice. Tomorrow we plan to have top-to-bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating, including the Madonna I Lift. We have 73 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 31 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Upper FIS, Smugglers’ Alley, and Snow Snake for a grand total of 123 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are packed powder and machine groomed with average base depths of 8 to 32 inches. Currently, it is partly sunny and 29 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of 39 degrees at the base and 29 degrees at higher elevations.

The Nordic Center is open with 15 km of snowshoeing and 17 km of cross-country trails. The ice rink is presently closed.

Next weekend the featured beer for the apres sports parties at Bootlegger’s and the Black Bear Tavern is Pabst Blue Ribbon.
