latest forecast

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
SEATTLE -- The National Weather Service has issued a snow warning for the Washington Cascades Monday night as a cold front hits Western Washington.

Forecasters expect up to a foot of snow at higher elevations. With the snow level dropping to 2,500 feet overnight, drivers could run into winter-like conditions in the Cascade passes.

Forecasters say hikers and climbers can expect hazardous conditions in the Cascades backcountry. They also can expect hazardous conditions in the Olympics where forecasters expect 4-to-9 inches of snow.

The cold front will bring rain showers to other parts of Western Washington through Tuesday. Forecasters say Eastern Washington will be cloudy with a chance of showers.

The local wags are calling this month "Junuary."

I'll be interested to see TRs from any intrepid Bears who earn their turns this week. Now, if only one of the local hills would start spinning their lifts again...

I have to admit I took last weekend off - my second week off since the first of the year, and as yet have not scored my June turns...but having just spent a week hiking the west side of Vancouver Island, I'm not sure I can justify missing tomorrow.

On the other hand, I could be up there by 6, and back to work by 11 or so. hmmm.

Timberline and Whistler will be running lifts through July. Blackcomb is closing today.

Yes, glacier skiing all summer long.

Now, Crystal is spinning up their lifts again starting June 20th for dining at the Summit House. Looks like the lifts will be running from 10:15am - 1:15 pm on Sundays. Nothing explicitly saying you can't bring your skis...

To clarify, Blackcomb remains open for skiing on the Horstman Glacier until the end of July (sightseeing and mtn. biking on the Whistler side).
From the current snowpack down at Timberline, they should have the Magic Mile and Palmer terrain skiable until at least the beginning of August (2500' vert.), then Palmer only until Labour Day wknd.
