Woke up Saturday morning to a snow report that said 39" overnight at Stevens (48" in 24hrs). Didn't believe because Stevens lies! Checked Stevens' website, 3 independent sites, and called their snowline. They all agreed.

We barely made it up on Saturday, as I found out later. We left earlier than usual but still got stuck in bad traffic as the snow continued puking down as far as Gold Bar. Pulled into the parking lot just before 9:30, hearing avy bombing in the background, and set foot on snow right as they opened up first chair on Skyline/Hogs. Talking to random people on the chair later that day, sounds like people that arrived 45-60min. after us were either forced down to the satellite parking lot or turned away altogether.

We went up both Saturday/Sunday this weekend and yeah....it was epic. I don't use that word often, but no better descriptor. If you missed out Saturday, well....good luck having another day like that in the next decade!
