The end of 2016 ushered in the biggest skier numbers since the winter of 2012-2013, the holiday season was a great time to get up into the mountains with friends and family. Hopefully you made it up to ride the fresh snow and weren't some of the folks who got turned around at the ski areas. Last week, several times, the ski areas literally sold out. It really wasn't a matter of selling out the mountain, but a matter of limited parking up at Stevens Pass and Crystal Mountain. If you were one of the unlucky who didn't get to ski due to a lack of parking, don't give up, we shouldn't see the parking fill up again until next holiday season.
