As we come up to the mid-way point of winter, most students find themselves heading to the passes, either Stevens Pass or Snoqualmie to shred in their free time. When the passes opened the weather wasn’t what they wanted, most of the extreme runs weren’t open which turned a lot of people home, the passes revenue all depends on how much snow they get per year. Most snowboarders went up once or twice since opening day back in November because the conditions of the snow have been terrible. When Stevens first opened it was usually only open from 9am – 4pm but as more snow dumps the time gets extended to 10pm. About a month or two into the season there was a turn of events, snow has finally began to dump at both passes, right now the base level at Stevens is between 83″-110″ and Snoqualmie is around 231″ of snow. If you want to see web cams or learn more about the mountain resorts or their hours of operation check out their websites stevenspass.com, summitatsnoqualmie.com

With the increase of snow, the pass has seen an increase of skiers/snowboarders showing up to ride. Everyone pumped for the snowfall again became very disappointed once again with what they had to offer, the snow was either just straight ice at most parts on the runs, or little to no power and many rocks showing. “The conditions as of the past couple of weeks have been very persistent with little to no snow fall. This past week has changed a lot through, we’re starting to see more snow and it’s look very promising considering Snoqualmie had to shut down there pass due to all the snow. So, I’m hoping that storm front comes our way up at Stevens,” Senior Brandon Salvador said.

With the pass expected to close down due to the snow storm they are about to encounter, the hope most people had to go up to shred quickly turned to devastation. There’s gonna be a lot of snow dumping in but nobody is gonna be able to get up with the roads getting closed for safety hazards, they are going to have to wait a bit to get up their to the fresh powder.
