Nightriding and conditions in WA ???

Hey, was wondering if Crystal Mountain, Mt Baker, or Steven's Pass offered any night riding.I've checked their sites, but they don't seem to have much if any info.

Also, what kind of weather conditions should I expect? I realize there's tons of snow, but I'm more worried about waterproofing of my outerwear.
recommendations?

Thanks

Baker...no night riding... about Stevens and Crystal for night riding. Often temps are on the warmer side, 25F-35F+, pow is often heavy wet chow, that packs quickly and gets hacked. Often very flat light, overcast...smith sensors are the standard. Bring the rain gear 20,000+, can be downpour raining at the bottom and puking on top. Bluebird is overated...brings out the gapers, whiteout puke with 10 ft vis...the true believers.

Hmm, thanks for the info.

re weather: Thats kind of what I was afraid of. I've only 10k pants and 5k jacket, keeping in mind, I started last season, so I didn't go all out and buy such expensive outerwear. I'll see if I can snag a cheap jacket before I head over there but...hmm...


Anyone else with info on nightriding at Crystal/Stevens?

Crystal doesn't have night rightriding, but stevens and the summit does. The snow isn't that great at the summit so I wouldn't go there unless you want to hit the park.

Like they said, only Stevens & Snoqualmie have night riding. Don't bother with Snoqualmie unless you're just going to be in the park, exclusively. Their terrain is laughable, other than Alpental. Stevens also has a great park, and better groomers for night riding.
