Today was another beautiful day with partly sunny skies and mild temperatures. I had a wonderful time on all 3 mountains today. I took a few cruiser runs on Morse and checked out the Morse Highlands area. I skied Madonna with my son Hugh B this morning. We skied Upper FIS to the traverse which brings you to Freefall. Freefall skied well with nice edgeable snow and good coverage. I headed over to Sterling later in the afternoon to get my race runs in. I thought that I did pretty good until I watched a few of the club kids run the course. I also had fun watching the Saint Michael’s Race Team slalom gate training on the Practice Slope this afternoon.
We are 100 percent open with top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. We have all 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. 34 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Waterfall, Black Snake, and Curley’s Cutback for a grand total of 138 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly cloudy skies with a high of 30 degrees.
The skiing and riding is just so good right now. I had a blast on Smugglers’ Alley this morning. It was not groomed last night and the new snow had been pushed into piles. I say piles instead of moguls because, they were just soft snow that I could go right through. I played in the woods some today too and found some nice untracked turns. We received 3 inches of new snow in the past 24 hours and 12 inches in the past 2 days. We are 100 percent open with top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating and all 78 trails open.
Robin’s Run is open from the work road down to Freefall. 40 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Ruthie’s, Smugglers’ Alley, and Garden Path for a grand total of 152 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Tomorrow’s forecast is flurries and periods of snow with another 2 inches of accumulation possible with temperatures between 22 and 33 degrees. We could see up to 7 more inches of new snow by Sunday night.
Today started off cloudy and then the fog rolled in. The forecast had called for snow and I was trying to watch for storm clouds, but the fog would not let me. Midday the snowflakes started to appear. They were small and pretty fine at the beginning. The snowflakes became bigger and more plentiful through out the afternoon. The snow is heavy and is sticking to everything, which is perfect. The existing snow will bond very well with the new snow to make for some wonderful conditions tomorrow. The forecast was calling for 1 to 2 inches today and we have already received 3+ inches. The new snow has really changed the surface conditions.

Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies early then partly sunny skies later with a high of 27 degrees.
