nice. Stevens was decent but not much fresh. Fine Spring skiing today. Pics soon.

Crystal next weekend? We will 99% likely be there.

@gortonator,

I'm not 100% sure for this up coming weekend. I will definitely PM you if I plan on being up there. Forecasts has some indication of potential. It was definitely a very nice surprise and to have gotten quite a few lines of fresh powder. Chair 6 was almost ski up or just a few minute wait for the first 2 hours. Then somebody must have put out the word that Southback was getting ready to open, and the powder hounds converged. Still it was not that bad on the hike back. Heck even skiing in the chutes that had been avy controlled was really light and deep.

Pics and report from a very good Stevens Pass last weekend at https://gortonator.wordpress.com/2017/04/12/steeps-and-spring-at-stevens-pass/.

There's a huge amount of snow and the crowds have totally diminished. Shame they are closing mid week, and just two more weekends to go.

Def at Crystal this weekend. Staying over at the Alpine Inn Saturday night for some Snorting Elk debauchery Cool

@gortonator,

Most likely not going this weekend. Family commitment at 2pm in Seattle on Saturday. I suppose I could shoot up for a few hours but not looking like it for me. Last week was probably my last day on snow for the season. Sad But it was an amazing last day if that turns out to be the case.

Insider tip. Go to Chair 6 first thing. It's not spinning during the week, so there should be about a foot of fresh waiting up there. As long as it didn't suffer a freeze/thaw, it should be good. Take the time to go all the way out to North Face of Campbell Basin and drop in there. Unless of course it looks good right off the chair! wink And they should get the Southback open by 11AM or so, and you can work on your fitness by doing a hike up Silver King.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Yes, I think so too. IMO one of the better run resorts in the PNW, if not North America.

@gortonator, glad you were able to partake. Looked a bit windblown from the pics. I've switched to the bike for the summer. Meanwhile CO and WY are getting hammered. Work buddy was in Denver yesterday and was dealing with snow!

That was a biggie in Wyoming.

Some of the GoldRush Rally supercars nearly got caught in it.

The snows all gone hows the smoke/fires ??
We looked at the web cams and you can see the smoke in the atmosphere. We are going through the mountains in a few days and the air quality is awful. In Kamloops air quality was 10 on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being awful stay indoors with the windows closed. When i checked the other day it was classed as 13 out of 10!!
Looked at some NASA picture and all the valleys were full of smoke. Its got a few days to improve. I am hoping for some rain.
