I am staying in Spokane for a few days next week before going up to Revelstoke. I plan to ski next Wednesday and Thursday at the local Spokane areas. 49, and Mt Spokane are both closed and out. Schweitzer only has the front side open and dirt patches clearly showing on the webcams, is more expensive even with discounted tickets and a bit further to drive so they are out. Silver and Lookout seem to have done considerably better this year with snow than any of those places so I had planned to ski both places. HOWEVER, both yesterday AND today Silver has had only lifts 1 and 2 open giving access to only 1 side of Kellogg Peak. That side of Kellogg Peak looks like it is only about the size of chair 1 on the front side of Lookout meaning that it is really small.
Are running chairs 1 and 2 at Silver normal and can I expect that they will do that next week? If they do only run chairs 1 and 2 would I be better off just hitting Lookout two straight days or doing 1 day at each even though only a fraction of Silver will be open? BTW All but one trail are closed off chair 1 at Silver. I have been to both mountains 1 day. In the past.
I do see that Silver will be closed on Wednesday so for sure I will going to Lookout that day.
Should I ski both days at Lookout or 1 at each assuming Silver only has partial operations?
