Lifts and Trails

Today we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 6 lifts operating. We have 30 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. All 30 trails have been groomed for today, that’s a grand total of 122 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are machine groomed and loose granular with average base depths of 12 to 40 inches. Snow Snake will have a delayed opening this morning. Upper FIS may be open later today.

Currently it is 4 degrees at the summit of Sterling with sunny skies and winds of 5 to 10 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with temperatures between 12 and 24 degrees.
