The other week I paid close attention to the storm that was heading towards the PNW.
At the last minute I decided to head down to Stevens Pass for the week. It turned out to be a great decision as the storm seemed to stay a bit south and completely missed Whistler and even Baker earlier in the week.
Here’s a quick rundown of the conditions each day that week…
Monday Night: Storming, fun, soft side hits, side pow
Tuesday: They reported about 15 inches, it felt more like 30. In the steep zones it would all just slide away to the ice layer now 45″ underneath. Nearly too deep to ride, still storming hard.
Wednesday: The hype day. About 15 more inches on top of the 45 so far in the week. Silky smooth over 95% of the mountain.
Thursday: The sleeper day. Around 8-10 more inches. Nobody on the hill. Way fun.
Friday: Only a few inches overnight, but made for a sweet day to hike.
Saturday: Maybe about 8 or 9 inches, storming hard. Backside lifts and Tye Mill closed until about 11 AM.. made for some real long lift lines, warriors angry, so they left, then all lifts open. Awesome.
These are some of the fun runs we took over the course of the week. Originally they were the clips I was going to throw away but figured why not make a simple, raw, powder cruising edit with funny bails. So enjoy and b HAPPY!
