Stevens Pass, 12/26?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Anyone heading up?  No new snow, lots of holiday skiers, but it'll be a bluebird day, and how many of them do we get here?  I plan to be up there by 8:45ish or so, would happily meet up with someone if anyone else will be there.

PM me or reply to this and we can trade cell phone #'s or figure out a meeting spot.

 I may be up later in the week, but not on the 26th.  Have fun.

Probably will avoid the crowds tomorrow. The groomers skied OK today. But it was surprisingly cold. Around 11:00, the crowds started building. The kinds of crowds where most folks have no control. Good natured, but moving obstacles nonetheless.

Yeah, "OK" was about right.  The groomers were awfully firm in the morning, got better when they got scraped off a little and ended up with the loose granular on the edges of the trails.  Off-trail stuff was pretty gnarly; things really froze up after the warm temps at the end of last week, I guess.

It was surprisingly uncrowded today.  One of the least crowded Saturday's I've ever skied at Stevens, it seemed like.  All in all an ok day, not a great day, but worth going up.  I didn't have anything better to do this morning, anyway. :)

Mt. Baker was exactly the same.  A C- of a day.  I had fun, though.

Same here.  And that's all that counts.

Remember a C- day at Baker is still better than 99% of the days in the east.

And there's snow in the forecast.

Though I've never skied east of the Okanogan, I doubt that this statement is true.
