Rockin’ Ron for the Legendary Hugh Johnson. Last night and into this morning our trusty Snowmakers were busy on the Lower Morse Liftline and Snow Snake trails. Meanwhile, the ever-popular Grooming Crew was driving and tilling up and down 30 trails to bring us 123 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Hey Expert Skiers and Riders – both Upper FIS and Smugglers’ Alley were groomed! Time to hit the slopes.
We are presently making snow on Midway, Garden Path, and Meadowlark. Currently, it is 20 degrees at the summit of Sterling with flurries and winds of 0 to 5 mph. Today’s forecast calls for cloudy skies with a chance of snow showers an inch of accumulation possible and a high of 25 degrees. Today we have the Sterling Lift and Sir Henry’s Glider operating. We also have the Village Lift and Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift open to mid-station. We have 22 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are packed powder and machine groomed with average base depths of 6 to 36 inches.
Rockin’ Ron here. You’ve probably seen and heard that there’s a major winter storm moving across the country. A lot of folks may not want the snow, but we snow sports enthusiasts welcome it… in other words… BRING IT ON! That doesn’t mean that our snowmakers are taking it easy – they’ll have the snow guns going whenever temps permit. Let there be SNOW and MORE SNOW!
Rockin’ Ron here. Mogul Mouse, Billy Bob Bear, and their handler are on an inspection tour of snowmaking on Morse Mountain. Voila – they found some snowmaking whales on Lower Morse Liftline! We plan to have beginner terrain open in the near future. “Furry soon,” say Mogul and Billy.
