skiing outside Seattle in the next couple of weeks..conditions?

Post by bauerb » Sun Jan 19, 2020 11:51 am

I may go visit family in Seattle and get in a couple of days of skiing. I am thinking the first weekend of Feb. anybody here ski the local areas like summitatsnoqualmie? how are the conditions? its a long trip for me, so any first hand reports would be great. their website says 144" of snow this year.....but Sugarbush also says 86"(....srsly ?)

I'm trying to keep it an hour or so from NE Seattle , but if anyone has a better idea/better conditions, I'd appreciate the intel.

thanks

Crystal has been limiting tickets due to crowds, from a recent report I received. Buy online for the days you are going, especially if a weekend or do your research beforehand.

I don't live out there.

I used to. Had a pass at Alpental. Fun mountain!
