We're finally getting the goods.  I spent the last two days at Baker in the best conditions I've skied this year.  Soft and dry, bluebird days.  Fantastic.  No pictures, I didn't want to stop.

Winter found the Central WA Cascades this week.  Stevens Pass was deeep today if you stayed away from where everyone else was.

Nice, keep that up down there.  I'll be down at Mt. Hood on the 5th and 6th.

Anybody make it out today?  Stevens went huge with 23" overnight and 32" in the last 24 hours.  I was up on Sunday, and am going up tomorrow, but unfortunately was not able to get up today.  I bet it was quite the day.  Sunday was still really good, snowed all day long.  Tomorrow should be nice too.

Too windy today down South and not the snowfall amounts Hood and Wash. getting. Hope to see 12"+ for Tuesday and cold temps. Rest of the week is looking very good Powder Gangsters.

Just got back...amazing day and snow still falling. Tomorrow should be great, too.
post #18 of 25

Couldn't make it today, but I'm on for tomorrow. I'll file a Baker report then.

 

Hey, rancher.  Where did you just get back from?

post #19 of 25

This is the third week in a row of great powder conditions at Mt. Baker.  There was 6" of new today on top of feet accumulated over the last several days.  It was cold, light, and wonderful.  Whoever says the Cascades don't get real powder should come on out here this week.  It's supposed to just keep on coming with new snow of various amounts every day for the foreseeable future.

 

Those Bears who like to follow the snow had better get moving.  The Cascade Mountains is where it's at right now.

Sounds like your snow is in better shape than Stevens.  I was up at Stevens today, and it was soft everywhere, but light wasn't the word I'd use to describe it.  I'm not sure why the snow set up a little, since the temps were fine.  Anyway, if you found untracked, it was very good, but the cut up crud was not the lightest in the world.  Still a very fun day, but probably the worst day I've skied in the last week.  I guess I'm getting spoiled by the snow the last couple of weeks.

Clearing tonight on the high desert and temps are dropping fast. Should be rather good Wed. getting a VIP tour w/ ski patrol, should be interesting to see ops from the inside. Have fun and be safe folks,ski with a partner. I'll see if I can get a few more photos up this week.

Posuane: sorry, that was vague.  I was at Stevens...meant that as a response to jaobrien06.  I'm surprised to hear that Stevens was disappointing today given how much snow and the temps.  Monday was great just on the shear depth.  Got to break in a new pair of Kastle MX108's properly!

post #23 of 25

Yeah.  I mean, it wasn't a terrible day at all.  I still had fun.  Just not as good as the past week has been.

post #24 of 25

Not exactly the Cascades, but..

Lookout Pass, ID has most snow in the world for the last 7 days. 179cm!

 

:D

 

Pete No Idaho is up there today.. Lucky him. I hope to get a break tomorrow to get some.
