Today Halley O’Brien was here from Snocountry Snow Reports. Snocountry receives snow reports from resorts across the U.S.A., Canada, Europe, and more. Halley visits different resorts and highlights them on “Snapshot” at Snocountry.com. Myself and a small group of Smuggs family members were lucky enough to join her today. We had a great time on Madonna and Sterling Mountain this morning. Catwalk provided us some sun-filled powder shots. Red Fox and Three Mountain Glades gave us wide open birch trees with powder turns for all. Sterling Mountain was also a blast with powder covered snowmaking whales on Snake Bite.
Lifts and Trails
Tomorrow we plan to have top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with 5 lifts operating. We have 48 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. We plan to open terrain in the next few days. 26 trails will be groomed for tomorrow, including Smugglers’ Alley, Jolly Rodger, and Upper Drifter for a grand total of 112 acres of freshly groomed terrain. Surface conditions are packed powder and powder with average base depths of 18 to 48 inches.
Currently it is 20 degrees with partly sunny skies at the summit of Sterling with winds of 5 to 10 mph. Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies with temperatures between 24 and 39 degrees.
Today our snowmakers were busy on Log Jam and the Practice Slope. Tonight they plan to make snow on Snake Bite and the Practice Slope.
