Ah, well... whoops.

At any rate, if you're going to be in the PNW for next year as well, you'll want to spend a lot of time at Snoqualmie summit west on the Pacific Crest lift (during the week, if you can swing it, weekends are crowded as hell on that run.) That hill in particular has some of the best low-mid level learning terrain I've ever seen, but it's closed for the season now.

For this season, keep an eye on the lift status for alpental, and try to get over there when Sessel is running. It's in between the difficulty of Central Express and Holiday, and doesn't have anything so flat that you'll get stuck when you wipe out. Do not get on the big main lift (Armstrong Express.) You will regret it bitterly.
