While it may not have been a typical warm, spring Saturday here at Sugarloaf, the skiing and riding was still fantastic, thanks to a fresh 1-2 inches of new snow at elevation. Today was more along the lines of a mid-March morning as opposed to late-April, with temps in the low 30's, fresh snow, and great coverage across 100+ open trails. Deep drifts of heavy pow could even be found stashed in the glades, perfect for those that aren't quite ready to let go of the freedom of winter just yet. For those that were looking for softer turns, groomed trails like Gondi Line and Skidder had easy to edge hero snow. It's hard to believe the season is beginning to wind down, so with a similar day in store for tomorrow, we're planning to make the most of it!
Tomorrow will once again be partly to mostly cloudy with a chance of flurries; temperatures will be slightly warmer in the mid 40's at the base and mid-30's up top, so prepare for a whole lot of awesome corn snow. Winds are expected to settle down and be calm tomorrow with the slightest hint of a breeze out of the north.
Groomers plan to work on the same 19 trails tonight, and those turns will likely be the best first thing tomorrow morning based on how they skied today (excellent, if you somehow missed out on today). We would like to remind you that conditions may be firm in the early morning hours due to below-freezing temperatures at night; Ski Patrol may temporarily limit downhill traffic to groomed terrain only until ungroomed surfaces soften up. We'll be sure to keep you updated here or on our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter with the latest information regarding trail and lift status.
Both the SuperQuad and Skyline are scheduled to run tomorrow. Beginning Monday (4/27) the SuperQuad will be the only lift scheduled to run daily for the rest of the season; all good things must come to an end (even ski seasons at Sugarloaf), and our closing day is scheduled for Sunday, May 3rd. Lift tickets prices are currently reduced to $49 for adult and teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors.
