Freshly groomed terrain

Lower Morse Liftline

Today we have skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 7 lifts operating. The Madonna I lift will not open today. In the case of a lift evacuation, the icy surface on Madonna Liftline would make it hard to get the skiers and rider off the mountain safely. Thank you for your understanding. We have 7 lifts operating and 35 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are machine groomed and variable with average base depths of 14 to 52 inches. All 35 trails have been groomed for today for a grand total of 138 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Currently, it is 11 degrees at the summit of Sterling with flurries and winds of 10 to 20 mph. Today’s forecast is calling for a chance of flurries early then mostly sunny skies with a high of 30 degrees. We plan to open the Madonna II Lift at 9 am. You can skin or hike from the top of the Madonna II Lift if you would like. Groomed terrain will be the best skiing and riding today.
