Tomorrow, all lifts will have a delayed opening until 9 am due to grooming operations. Temperatures drop below freezing late tonight, so we have to delay grooming operations to provide the best snow quality. Tomorrow, we plan to have 6 lifts operating, including the Madonna I Lift. We have 59 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 30 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Smugglers’ Alley, Snow Snake, McPherson’s, Curley’s Cutback, Snake Bite, and skier’s right on Upper FIS for a total of 124 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions will be machine groomed and loose granular with average base depths of 8 to 34 inches. Currently, it is cloudy and 32 degrees at the summit of Sterling, with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast calls for cloudy skies early, becoming partly sunny later, with a high of 39 degrees at the base and 29 degrees at higher elevations.
