Damn! Stevens on Friday will be nice. That is one nice looking forecast.
Snoqualmie is getting hit pretty hard this week too. I hope they can open on Saturday.
I live close to snoqualmie and the passes are cheap so that's where I ride the most. No doubt that Baker/Stevens/Crystal are better than snoqualmie from an overall standpoint, but Alpental is pretty bad ass. It's got some of the best terrain around. The only problem is it is accessible by just one two man chair, so the lines on powder days get out of control.
It also has some really good BC stuff that is just a traverse away from the chair….no hiking needed.
