Weekend warriors, your fair weather weekend daydreams will, finally, come to fruition tomorrow and Sunday. Your weekends thus far have been, how should I say it, less than ideal but that's all about to change. With a forecast full of mild, but not too mild, temps and a little sunshine thrown in, I expect you all to come out in droves. And it's not all about the weather. Terrain is in tip top shape thanks to a weeks worth of TLC from our snowmakers and groomers, and I know they are ready for you all to enjoy the fruits of their labor.
There will be a chance of some early morning flurries and then the clouds will try and break so skiers and riders can soak up a little vitamin D. Temps will be between 32-36 degrees at the base and 25-29 degrees at the summit, and the west wind will start out breezy but should diminish some.
We may love the incoming mild temps, however, the numbers aren't exactly ideal for our crew of snowmakers. They will continue their mission of burying trails tonight on Haulback, Widowmaker, and Flume and will shut systems down tomorrow morning. Groomers will cover most of the open trails, 46 to be exact, tonight. You can expect all lifts, with the exception of West Mountain, to be up and running tomorrow.

There's no shortage of live music this weekend. Head over to the Events Calendar Page for the full scoop. Tomorrow is our first Bud Light Concert Series of the season, and we're bringing back Ghost of Paul Revere. Doors open at 8pm and show at 9pm; you'll want to get there early. Entry will be $5 or free of charge with proof of your valid season pass.
Join Sugarloaf and the UMF Snow Sports/Freeride team for an evening rail jam. The intermediate event will take place on The Beach starting at 4pm, and you can register beforehand at The Burton Shop from 2-3:30pm. Entry fee is $10, cash only.
The trails at the Sugarloaf Outdoor Center are open for Nordic skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating, and fat biking. You can check their Conditions Page for more details. Don't forget to make a pit stop at the Bull Moose Cafe, open 10am-3pm. With hot soups, sandwiches, and yummy baked goods it's the perfect spot for lunch.
Go check out the rail jam!
