Tons of snow

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERANew Snow

The snow gauge says that we received 8 inches of new snow, but that is not true.  We have so much snow that the snow gauge is buried. The snow gauge sets on a platform, which is about 3 to 4 feet above the ground. You look down on the snow gauge as you ski or ride by! We did receive a dusting of new snow this afternoon and yesterday making our season snowfall total 376 inches.

Sunday, April 21st

sunriseserviceEaster Summit Sunrise Service

On Easter Sunday, conditions permitting, the Sterling lift will transport attendees up the mountain free of charge to participate in a non-denominational service and Easter message by a local minister. Lift loading begins at 6:00 am and ends promptly at 6:30 am. No experience with riding the chairlift is necessary. Following the service, guests may ski or snowboard to the base area or ride the lift back down the mountain.

Please note: The service is held outdoors. All participants are advised to dress very warmly for the much cooler and windier conditions typically found on the mountaintop and for riding the lift. Be prepared to walk in the snow, warm and waterproof boots are recommended, from the lift unloading station to the gathering spot about 200 yards away.

Parking is available in any of the resort’s upper mountain lots. For information or questions regarding the service, please call 802-793-7095 or 802-644-8572. The service will not take place in the event of inclement weather. Any changes to this event will be posted here. We hope you’ll join us for this special event!
