Westside Snow Report 11/23/16

By Greg Whittaker

You guys ready for an actual ski report instead of how to gear up for the winter? Well we have snow in the mountains with 1 to 3 feet expected and northwest ski and snowboard areas are opening!

Whistler opens Wednesday (tomorrow) and Crystal is shooting for a Friday opening, however be sure to check their websites for details. Mt. Bachelor is also opening this Friday if you happen to be down visiting family in Oregon, bring your gear. Mt. Baker Ski Area should get enough in this storm and it is anticipated that they will open on Friday as well. Mission Ridge is also observing how the storm hits and may be open as early as Friday as they have setup a great base with their snow-making equipment and Mother Nature is helping out with this weather system big time. Stevens Pass, Summit at Snoqualmie and White Pass won’t be far behind, so it looks like a great start to the year is ramping up.
