Good morning. It's a bit chilly out there this morning but the Mountain Ops teams hit the ground running last night, making sure the mountain wakes up and is ready for a full day of skiing and riding. There is a wind chill advisory in effect, so when heading out this morning, make sure everyone is dressed for the weather with plenty of layers and a face mask. Once you're all covered up, there is plenty of fun in the sun to be had.
The February Vacation festivities will continue throughout the week with a torchlight parade and fireworks display Monday night, there will be s'mores roasting with you favorite Sugarloaf characters on Tuesday afternoon, our first-ever Family First Tracks Wednesday morning, a moonlight climb Friday night, along with much more to keep you going after a long day of skiing and riding. For a complete schedule of activities and for more information check out the event page right here.
Today's forecasts show that while it will be cold, we should see partly sunny skies throughout the day, with clear skies and sunshine on tap for Monday. Daytime temperatures today are expected to be around -4 to -8 degrees at the base and -15 to -11 degrees at the summit, so you'll want to layer up. Moderate summit winds should be around 25 to 40 mph coming from the the Northwest, while base winds should be around 10 to 16 mph. With colder temps and increasing wind, please be mindful of exposed skin. Be sure to bundle up before venturing out, and stay warm throughout the day with a hot chocolate break (or two) at Bullwinkle's.
Our groomers spent the night going over 72 trails and leaving behind some pretty awesome corduroy for us today. The Snowmaking Crew is taking a short hiatus for now, but plan to start back up again after the mid-week storms.
Our Park Crew has been pulling some seriously long hours to make sure our freestyle terrain is top notch, and boy have they delivered. We have beginner (Skybound), Intermediate (Stomping Grounds), and Expert (Haywire) parks not to mention a full Boarder-X course for all your whirly birdies and flippity do's. Each park offers box and rail features as well as multiple jumps for your skiing and riding pleasure.
West Mountain and Snubber are scheduled to open at 8am this morning. The SuperQuad, Skyline, Whiffletree, King Pine, Double Runner East, Skidway, and Sawduster are scheduled to spin at 8:30am. Timberline, T-Bar, and the Moosecalator are scheduled to follow at 9:00am. As always, you can find the most up-to-date information on trail openings and lift status over on our Trails & Lifts Status Page, or by following our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter.
See you out there!
