This weekend couldn't have been any better. Burnt Mountain Cat skiing made history and launched for the first time ever on Friday, yesterday we opened up the backside snowfields and today we unveiled our newest glade aptly named Alice's Winter Land for kids to explore and enjoy the experience of being in the trees. To round out the weekend, the wind gave us some pockets of relief here and there allowing us to access the King Pine area. Life is good and the snow conditions are great.
For the rest of the day we can all continue to bask in the aura of sunshine and blue skies. Tomorrow will be slightly warmer bringing highs in the low twenties at the base and low teens at the summit. The sky will be clear and the northwest winds will diminish just a tad. We're still keeping our eye on the weather for later on this week to see what we can add to our monstrous snowfall count of over four feet that we've gotten so far this month. Stay tuned.
Our fleet of groomers are set to roll out the corduroy carpet on just over 50 trials tonight into tomorrow morning. Nine lifts are scheduled to spin beginning at 8:30am. If you'd like to stay up-to-date on the status of lifts, click here, or follow @SugarloafSnow on Twitter.
Aside from legendary snowfall, history was made this past Friday as Burnt Mountain Cat Skiing opened for the first time ever. With nearly four feet of new snow (and counting) the trees are full, and we were rockin' and rollin'. Cats depart the Log Yard every half hour, from 9:30am - 2:30pm, Saturdays and Sundays. Book ahead for next weekend. Be sure to click over to sugarloaf.com/catskiing for all the need-to-know details.
