Welcome back, winter.

The Sunday after February break is for rest and relaxation, and also a few laps at the Loaf. Just as quick as the seasons changed last week, they have changed again and winter is back. Mother Nature may have tried to trick us with the curve ball, but it was no match for the swing that this mountain can deliver. Skiing around this morning, the mountain doesn't look quite the same as it did a week ago, however the base is still solid, our groomers are working their tillers off to get trails back into shape, and we are coming up on March. This, my friends, tends to be one of the snowiest months along with February.  So Sugarloafers, rest assured, as I know I will have more snow to report and it could be as soon as midweek.

The weather has settled for now and the forecast shows a couple of nice, sunny days to start the week. We may see some morning snow flurries to start our Monday and then the sky will open up. Temperatures will be between 32-36 degrees at the base and 22-26 degrees at the summit. The wind is expected to increase tonight and hold steady first thing tomorrow before it calms. 

Our groomers had some extra days off last week due to the warm, and now that things have cooled off they are ready to get back to work and whip the mountain back into shape. They truly are the best. Their to-do list for the evening includes 56 trails. Lift Operations will be back to their regular weekday schedule of 9 lifts tomorrow morning. Remember, you can save on lift tickets by buying them in advance online. The earlier you buy the more you can save. Check out all the details here.

Mardi Gras, Fat Tuesday...call it what you want. All I know is that it means it's time to throw a party. The Loaf is celebrating this Tuesday's festivities with a Mardi Gras Party at the Widowmaker with Gretchen and The Pickpockets starting at 9pm.

March is jam packed with events every weekend, so head on over to the Events Calendar page to check out all the details so you can mark your calendar now. We'll kick off the month with the Winterkids Downhill 24 events next Saturday, followed by the 7th Annual Banked Slalom, and wrapping up the month with the U.S. Alpine Championships.

The Sugarloaf Outdoor Center is now open daily with both skate and classic skiing. Currently, the skating rink is closed. Check out their Conditions Page for the most up-to-date info and conditions. The Nordic Retail Shop and Rentals are open from 9am-5pm, and the Bull Moose Cafe is open from 10am-3pm.    

Hang in there, Sugarloafers. The snow will return.
