I am going to get a couple of hours of sleep (just got off shift) and head up to Meadows to hike Vista Ridge up to Cascade (same hike we did). It is 16F and 18 inchess, but you know how it settles on that lee side. Going to get me some today...
I was thinking about that when I checked the telemetry donw there. Seems like the spot be right now.. high up on a volcanoe you know.
Sweet dude! The next SW sale (this one doesn't cover March) I'll get tickets to cover for those dates. Hopefully a week off! I'm in!
Looking forward too it. I'll try and keep myslef healthy this year.
I think a group of us a are planning on going their AS SOON AS THEY OPEN, it look's like they are the closest to opening day (that isn't too far from us) What do you think will be the openning weekend ? Do they have any snow machines to help speed it up ? Trying to look at lodging...
They still need a few more feet, and it is supposed to get warmer again before it gets colder. They don't have any snow machines. I'd look in Leavenworth for lodging. Stevens Pass Motel - Goldbar, WA.
in gold bar is pretty cheap.
ale, hows the hiking around stevens this time of year? I live about 45 minutes from Baker so i usually head up there to hike around, but may be down south this weekend and would love to get the dogs out there and take a few turns.. Do you park on the side of the road just like regular season, and start walking up? ha
Hiking isn't as good as up at Baker. Stevens just got a good dose from the convergance zone that set up. Just park in the resorts main lot, nobody will hassle you. Until it fills in a tad more, the only thing ridable is low angle in bounds.
The first photo was yesterday on a run called skid road. Today we went to the back side and rode down to the powerlines.
