If that will be true then when do you think the ski area will open?

If the snow continues to fall this week, West might open the weekend of the 8th. They usually need at least 2' to open the grassy slopes of West. I didn't notice if they had been blowing any snow at the pipe but I kind of doubt it.


I just checked the pass report and as of 8:45pm they have closed Snoqualmie due to too many accidents.

They actually closed eastbound traffic at mp 34 prior to 7pm...I think it was closed for about 2 hours. Now it's open but one lane, so a modified metering if you will. I listen to the DOT on my scanner so I can keep up with conditions.

We drove up the hill from Issaquah from 5-6pm and visibility was crap after Northbend. Way windy and heavy blowing snow. I think the DOT will be busy all night cleaning it up. If the wind keeps up they'll have drifts to deal with as well.
