More Snow. More Trails.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. 100% of the trails on Madonna and Sterling Mountains were open today, and all but three on Morse, making a grand total of 75 of 78 trails!! 6″ of new snow overnight and 20″ in the past 5 days will do that. Tomorrow, we expect a similar trail count. I enjoyed runs on Upper Chilcoot, Goat Path, and Lower FIS with the Allman Brothers’ Blue Sky in the earbuds.

NOTE: Uphill access on Morse will be closed on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights due to snowmaking.

All of these trails were open today!

Top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains

3 Mountain ticket sales are closed for Sunday, February 14th. We have reached our comfortable capacity.

Tomorrow we plan to have 5 lifts operating, including the Madonna I Lift. We have 72 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Surface conditions are packed powder and powder with base depths of 16 to 50 inches. Snowmaking resumes tonight on Sterling Mountain. 29 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including McPherson’s, Snow Snake, and Jolly Rodger for a grand total of 117 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Currently, it is partly sunny and 4 degrees at the summit of Sterling. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for partly sunny skies with a high of 11 degrees.

Employees are red-flagged for this weekend. They can ski or ride on the all mountains from 8:00 am till 10:00 am.

Uphill travel closed on Sterling Mountain Friday, February 12th due to snowmaking. Uphill travel open on Madonna Mountain is available from 5:30 am till 7:30 am on open trails only and no dogs.

Uphill access

Morse Mountain will be closed for uphill access Monday, February 8th through Wednesday, February 10th due to snowmaking operations. We have adjusted our grooming schedule to open uphill access on Madonna those same three nights from 6 to 9 pm only.  Please be respectful and keep your distance from any snowcats you should encounter. People skiing behind snowcats with headlamps on are especially distracting to the operator as your lights flash in their mirrors.  This presents a hazard to you and the cat operator!

Sterling Mountain daily from 5:30 am till 7:00 am. On open trails and off the mountain by 8:00 am.
