Natural snow and snowmaking

We received 2 inches of new snow today and 80 inches this season so far! We are presently making snow on Practice Slope, Midway, Black Snake, Meadowlark, and Snake Bite. The Practice Slope, Snake Bite, and Black Snake will be closed tomorrow due to snowmaking operations. We plan to have these trails open this weekend. The new snow made a big difference today and will groom in the existing snow nicely. Tomorrow, we plan to have Sterling Lift, Village Lift, Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, and Sir Henry’s Glider operating. We will have 12 trails open for Friday, with terrain for all ability levels. All 12 trails will be groomed for tomorrow; that’s a total of 50 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable, with average base depths of 12 to 36 inches. Currently, it is 6 degrees at the summit of Sterling, with flurries and winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with a high of 23 degrees at the base and 17 degrees at higher elevations.
