Sunset seen through the back window of the cat
It was a beautiful night for a Cat Trax Tour on Morse Mountain last night. We took in a wonderful sunset from the top of the Village Lift. The fantastic colors in the sky continued through the torchlight parade and the fireworks! This was an amazing experience and another great way to take in all that Smuggs has to offer!
Top of the Village Lift
Lifts and Trails
Today we have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 4 lifts operating, including the Madonna I lift. We have 54 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 18 to 48 inches. 36 trails have been groomed for today, including Shuttle, Snow Snake, and Smuggler’s Alley for a grand total of 134 acres of freshly groomed terrain.
Sunset and parade
Currently it is sunny and 21 degrees at the summit of Sterling with winds of 0 to 5 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for sunny skies early with increasing clouds, a chance of snow/mix late in the day with temperatures between 22 and 41 degrees.
Sunset and fireworks
I would like you to meet Sheena Petal and her 1 year old daughter Addie. Four years ago on a very cold day Addie’s parents Sheena and Jay took a Cat Trax Tour to the top of Madonna Mountain. I was on that Cat Trax Tour with Sheena and Jay. When we got in the heated cabin of the groomer they informed us that they were going to get married on top of the mountain. They had a Justice of the Peace along with them to perform the ceremony. I remember joking with them on the cat ride up the mountain that it was not going to rain on your wedding day. It was a beautiful ceremony and one I will never forget. The funny thing is last night on the Cat Trax Tour up Madonna Mountain, I was telling the story of Sheena and Jay getting married when it was -25 degrees. Then today I ran into Sheena and Addie in front of Treasures Day Care. I told Sheena that I was just talking about you! Sheena and Jay have been coming to Smuggs ever since getting married here. Sheena and Addie were going to check out Treasures Day Care, so that Mommy and Daddy could go make some turns. It was wonderful to run into you and Addie today!
