Great last day!

Today was the final day of the 2023 – 2024 season. We had a good turnout for the last hurrah. It was fantastic having both the Madonna I Lift and Sterling Lift operating today. I would have to say that Upper FIS was the trail pick of the day. The soft bumps were delightful run after run! I want to thank everyone who came to visit us this season. I also want to thank all of the Smuggs employees for all their hard work in making each season the best it can be. Have a fabulous summer, and I will see you on the slopes next winter.

We called him Superman

As I wrap up the season, I can’t help but reflect on a member of our Smuggs family who we lost this winter. For years, Sean Hayes was a Ski Patroller and Ski Instructor with the Smugglers’ Notch Adaptive Program. Sean loved to help people and was passionate about everything he did. He was a Ski Instructor before becoming a Ski Patroller. Sean would adjust his patrol schedule so that he could switch back to the Smugglers’ Notch Adaptive Program and ski with people he had worked with in the past. Sean was a deep-sea fisherman traveling hundreds of miles into the ocean before joining the Smuggs family. Sean loved to make people laugh and smile by telling a joke or two. One of the best things about Sean was how he made you want to be a better person because he led by example! Sean, you will always be missed and never forgotten!

Ski fast and take chances.

One more day

Tomorrow is the last day of the 2023 – 2024 Season. We plan to have the Madonna I Lift and Sterling Lift operating. We plan to open both lifts at 9 am. There is some walking required to get to the lift from Lot #1, but you can ski or ride back. We plan to have 24 trails open with terrain for intermediates and experts. Tonight’s forecast calls for a mix, turning to snow on top with a couple of inches of accumulation possible. Tomorrow’s forecast is partly sunny skies early with rain developing later, a high of 46 degrees at the base, and 41 degrees at higher elevations. Get it while you can!

Uphill update:

Spring fun

The temperatures rose fast today, reaching 52 degrees at the summit and 65 degrees at the base. It was a day for sunscreen and trying to find the right wax. My favorite runs of the day were Smugglers’ Alley and Snake Bite. The steep pitches allowed you to power through the heavier snow. Tomorrow, we plan to have the Sterling Lift operating. We have 30 trails open with terrain for intermediates and experts. 8 trails will be groomed for tomorrow; that’s 38 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and spring conditions with average base depths of 10 to 36 inches. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies with showers, a high of 52 degrees at the base, and 46 degrees at higher elevations. Wear something waterproof tomorrow and enjoy the soft conditions. Lift operations will be closed on Thursday, April 11th, and Friday, April 12th. The weather looks pretty nasty for these two days, so we won’t be missing much. We plan to have both the Madonna I Lift and the Sterling Lift operating this weekend! The last day of the season is Sunday, April 14th.

Unbelievable

Words can’t describe it, and photos can’t do it justice. To watch the sky go from a bright sunny day to night and back to a sunny day in a few minutes is crazy. Sunsets, sunrises, and even a sundog! I’m still trying to take it all in. Tomorrow, we plan to have the Sterling Lift operating with 31 trails open. We have terrain open for intermediates and experts only. Currently, it is sunny again and 45 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with a high of 56 degrees at the base and 52 degrees at higher elevations.
