I was hanging out in Birch Run Terrain Park this afternoon taking some photos, getting shots of people coming off the jump above the first set of rails. I was having fun watching all the different tricks that the skiers and riders were pulling off. Then this snowboarder did this crazy spin, which looked off axis and landed clean. I ran into him at the top of the Sterling T-Bar where he was getting ready to head back to Birch Run Terrain Park. I asked him about the trick that he had just done. He told me is was a 540 Rodeo off his toe edge. Check out his body position at take off!
Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. Lifts will operate on their weekend scheduled time this holiday week. We have 77 out of 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. The only closed trail is Robin’s Run. Surface conditions are packed powder and powder with average base depths of 24 to 54 inches. We plan to groom 44 trails tonight, including Jolly Rodger, Snow Snake, and Playground for a grand total of 155 acres of freshly groomed terrain.
Currently it is partly sunny and 14 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for light snow 1 to 2 inches of accumulation possible with temperatures between 11 and 18 degrees.
