Thanks for the best wishes.
I went to Stevens Pass and had a blast. I would have gone to Crystal Mt. if it had more snow. Both areas are less than a two-hour drive from where I am now living near Seattle. If I had started off earlier, I would have gone to Mt. Baker however, which is a longer drive.
Somewhat to my embarrassment, when I wrote this before heading off yesterday, I forgot that my true first turns of the season were at Mt. Bachelor Thanksgiving weekend.

Stevens Pass had only limited terrain open with grass stalks sticking out here and there but at least there were no rocks and my skis were undamaged. [img]smile.gif[/img] However, most ski areas in WA. could use some of that excess snow that is now falling in CA.
Today regrettably, I have to start my Christmas shopping.
