Good afternoon, Sugarloafers. It sure was a treat to be skiing under clear blue skies today when the forecast had been calling for clouds and rain. While trails were a little firm first thing this morning they quickly softened; by noon each trail I sampled was filled with soft, succulent corn and the turns were nothing short of superb.
The clouds finally rolled in just before 2pm, bringing with them light showers that are forecast to continue on and off, becoming steadier by midnight. Tomorrow morning the rain will lighten, becoming more sporadic, with light, occasional drizzle as the day progresses. Base temps will be between 51-55 degrees and 46-50 degrees higher on the mountain.
Because of the warm temps and wet weather, groomers will be concentrating on the lift areas and will try to groom Lower Tote Road, as conditions allow. As is common this time of year, skiing and riding conditions may vary across the mountain with the possibility of thin coverage and unmarked obstacles.
For the rest of the week, our Lift Operators plan to run only two lifts: the SuperQuad and Skyline.
Conditions permitting, we'll be skiing and riding daily through May 1st. So it's time to start thinking about your last few runs of the year, and with lift tickets now at reduced spring rates there's no better time to escape to the Loaf, if even for just a Day. Lift ticket prices are currently $39 for adults and teens, and $30 for juniors and seniors. The season is winding down, but there's still plenty of snow to enjoy. Come on up and make the most of your last few runs with lodging in on-mountain condos for as little as $30 per person per night. Click here for all the details, or give us a call at 1-800-THE-LOAF to book your stay today.
Spring is not over here at Sugarloaf, but time is running out for you to grab your 2017/18 New England Pass at one of the best prices of the year during our Spring Sale. Act by April 30th to take advantage of our Easy Pay Plan; with a deposit of just $50 you can lock in the discounted spring rate on your pass, then pay the balance in four installments over the summer. MAXimize your winter experience with a 2017/18 M.A.X. Pass, and access up to 43 additional mountain resorts for as little as $329.
