Winter storm warnings and watches are in effect again this weekend for Washington’s Cascade mountains. King5 TV is forecasting over 3ft of mountain snow over the long weekend. Below is Alison Morrow’s report on snow conditions and the high avalanche danger including interviews with John Stimberis of Alpental’s Ski Patrol and WSDOT, Matt Leitzinger and our own TNT. Join us this weekend at Alpental for Vertfest, a mountain festival dedicated to raising the level of snow safety education and stoke for backcountry enthusiasts, and supporting the efforts of avalanches centers everywhere. While there, be sure to check out Pro Guiding Service’s tent and try out some new gear, including Dean Cummings’ H2O skis. Live to ski another day.
