ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

By Greg Whittaker

Those of you who were able to make it up into the Summit at Snoqualmie had an surprising 12 inch dump of fresh snow that was unexpected and well worth skiing. Cold air that was stationed over the Cascades was slammed into by the wet front, and particularly at Alpental, the snow just filled the sky and it kept on coming. It was a very specific storm which settled in over I-90 the strongest, with Crystal, Stevens Pass and Mt. Baker seeing only about 4 - 5 inches.

That said, skiing is fantastic throughout the region right now. The days are getting longer, and while the chance of lowland snow pretty much ends March 8th according to Cliff Mass the local weather guru, March and April can be some of the best skiing days of the year with big snowfall and more sunlight which keeps some key lifts open later in the day.

So, if you have been thinking of heading up to the mountains, it is definitely worth your energy. If you've been up somewhere you enjoyed, swing through the shop and regale us with your tales of adventure.
