Hugh's Blog by Rockin' Ron - 1M ago

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. My friends Doug and Dodi Gomez were seizing the day at Smuggs! In ye olde Smugglish “Carpe Ski’em” means to “Skiis-the-day” or “Skiis-the-moment”. In other words “make hay while the sun shines” or “smoke ’em if you got ’em” for this could be the last day of the 2018-2019 Winter Season. On Wednesday – a determination will be made about Lift Operations for next weekend – check back then for details.

Doug, Dodi, and I enjoyed skiing the Alley and Highlander Glades.
Yours truly and my Pirate Ski Poles.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. There will be Spring Skiing today, but temps dropped below freezing late last night and that means the Groomers will be working right up until the time of the DELAYED LIFT OPENINGS: Sterling at 9:00am and Madonna 1 at 9:30am.

NEXT WEEKEND. On Wednesday, a determination about next weekend’s Lift Operations will be made. Stay tuned skiers and riders.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. with temps reaching 60 degrees, there was bound to be some melting snow, a few streams, and great spring skiing! I got to make some turns with my friend Bruce Morrisey of smuggsphoto.com. Turnabout was fairplay – he was the subject and I took the photos. Upper FIS to Lower Doc’s was my favorite run of the day.

LIFTS & TRAILS: DELAYED LIFT OPENINGS on Sunday: Sterling 9:00, Madonna 9:30. Trail counts/grooming determined by conditions. We’ll be closed midweek, April 15th – 19th. On Wednesday, a determination will be made about next weekend’s Lift Operations.

Bruce is Streaming Live! He catches air over water.
Spring Skiing makes Bruce jam for joy!

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Despite the date on the Calendar, conditions are GREAT! Therefore, many of the usual suspects were on the slopes. It’s always fun to hang out with Darcy & Dale and talk tunes and trails. At the Rumrunner-Black Snake intersection we conferred with Blinky and Dr. John, and their suggestion was Harvey’s to Full Nelson, and good advice it was. LIFTS & TRAILS – this Saturday and next both Madonna 1 and Sterling will be operating with 50+ trails open for intermediates and experts. This Sunday and next, it will be the Sterling Lift and 30 trails. There is also a Sunrise Service on Sterling Mountain on Easter Sunday, April 21st, with the Lift loading from 6:00-6:30am.

Dale & Darcy – longtime and frequent skiers. They are also talented musicians. This car has a License to SKI!
