Spring roll

It was another great day of spring skiing and riding. I want to thank our groomers for doing a great job on Smugglers’ Alley last night. I had my stiffer skis on this morning and Smugglers’ Alley was my trail of choice. Beautiful corduroy to cruise on! Once the snow started to soften up I switched to a wider, softer ski and went looking for the corn. Patrol dropped the rope on Thomke’s Express and Bootlegger from the work road. I had to ski them and had a blast. I would have to say that my favorite run in the afternoon was Snake Bite. It has not been groomed in a while and it has some nice big soft bumps!

Tomorrow we plan to have the Sterling Lift operating with 15 trails open. We only have intermediate and expert terrain available at this time. Some trails will have a delayed opening until they soften up. 9 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Smugglers’ Alley, Black Snake, Birch Run, Practice Slope, and Rumrunner for a grand total of 37 acres of freshly groomed terrain. It is currently sunny and 41 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with of high of 61 degrees at the base and 52 degrees in the higher elevations.

Weather dependent, we plan to stay open until Sunday, April 11th. The Madonna I Lift and Sterling Lift may be operating for closing weekend. The forecast for Sunday, April 11th is partly sunny skies with a high of 61 degrees.
