width=We’re having a hard time transitioning into spring. Another winter storm is underway. We’re looking at possible snow totals for the West slopes of the Washington Cascades of 18″ by tomorrow afternoon and 30″ by Sunday morning at elevations >4000ft or so. That will keep us firmly in the top #1 and 2 spots for the deepest snow base in N. America. Leading the nation is the King of Snow: Mt. Baker with a whopping 188″ at Pan Dome. Second place goes to our own Alpental at the Summit at Snoqualmie with 173″ at the summit. Neighboring western WA and OR resorts aren’t far behind. Tyler Tran sent this video over of the gang getting some turns up in the Baker zone yesterday, pre-storm. They spent the day up in the Swift Creek area, just out past Austin Pass, on what looked to be a pretty gwanchy day of skiing… But, it was skiing, and they were skiing the fresh :-). Just wait until tomorrow! It’s snowing nicely outside our Central Cascade headquarter windows right now (at 2,600’ above sea level, Hyak, WA), making for another excellent start to a Spring weekend if you stay nice and high. By the way, Seattle broke a record for rainfall in March (and it’s not over yet).
