While the forecasts called for all clouds and a few rain showers this morning, we've instead seen a beautiful mix of blue sky and clouds as the sun has risen here at Sugarloaf. Temps are warm, the air is calm, and sunshine is poking through a mist rising from the valley. It feels like today is going to be a good ski day thanks to the very modest snow pack we still have. The bumps, the trees, and the groomers all have fantastic and soft coverage, and it has been a real treat to be able to ski so much variety over half way through April. With nearly 1000 acres of terrain still open and looking great, we are planning to stay open daily into May, snow conditions permitting.
Forecasts are calling for cloud cover to increase again today with a chance of showers this afternoon. Temps will range from 44-48 degrees at the base and 34-38 degrees at the summit, and winds will start out on the calmer side but have the potential to strengthen some as the day continues.
Our groomers decided to stay off most of the mountain last night, and are working on a reduced list of 9 trails this morning. There are two lifts scheduled to run this morning: Skyline and the SuperQuad. Double Runner will reopen this weekend on Saturday and Sunday.
As is common this time of year, snow conditions tend to be fairly firm in the early morning hours due to below freezing temperatures at night, which may cause ski patrol to delay opening ungroomed terrain or limit traffic to groomed areas until natural conditions are softer and safer. Be sure to check the Trails & Lift status page of our website or follow our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter for the latest updates throughout the day.
We are currently offering a discounted spring rate on daily lift tickets: $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors.
The Sugarloaf Explorer shuttle service is closed for the season, however the parking lot shuttle service will continue as normal until closing day.
