And, just like that, another beautiful spring weekend is in the books. We saw a tremendous turnout for the annual Season Passholders' BBQ, and the skiing was incredible. Thanks to all of our season passholders for another great winter, and congratulations to Michael Tighe and Bear Thompson, this year's Paul Schipper Iron Man (and woman) award recipients.
Snow surfaces started out on the wintery side, thanks to an inch of fresh snow that we picked overnight, but quickly softened in to delectable spring corn. Once the clouds parted, Mother Nature supplied us with an endless stream of sunshine and warm temperatures throughout the afternoon, and the good vibes were plentiful!
Tomorrow's forecast is looking a little unsettled with a mixed precipitation storm front moving in during the afternoon hours. Daytime temperatures will range from 40-44 degrees at the base and 32-36 degrees at the summit.
Our groomers plan to hit 29 trails again tonight, including Skidder, White Nitro, and Narrow Gauge. As is common with this time of year, surfaces may be firm first thing in the morning due to below-freezing overnight temps, so Ski Patrol may temporarily limit downhill traffic to groomed terrain only until ungroomed surfaces soften up.
The SuperQuad and Skyline are set to turn at 8:30 tomorrow morning, and lift tickets will be reduced to spring rates of $59 for adults, $49 for teens, and $39 for juniors and seniors. As always, we'll be sure to keep you updated here or on our @SugarloafSnow account on Twitter with the latest information regarding trail and lift status.
The Timberline lift will remain closed for the remainder of the season. For additional information on Timberline, please click here. Today was the last day that we'll be running snow-cat rides to the summit, however that terrain will remain open to hiking while conditions permit.
