Triple8Sol Was up there Saturday and it was probably the last good day I could have at Stevens until they get another storm. Literally searched/hiked everywhere inbounds and found a few good turns, but not many and had to work for it.

Clayton Bigsby Hope this next storm drops some good fresh, need powder

Yeah, heres the thing.

It wasn't great.

When they said on the website, "We are keeping the powder fresh for you" I took it to mean that maybe they didn't open some of the lifts.

The reality is, they ran all the lifts from 9-12, and had what many of the liftees are calling employee appreciation day.

Therefore, the entire mountain had already been chopped up.

Pretty lame if you ask me.

So you get there FIRST (7am) and they make you park in the further east lot ? Over the years (30+ pass holder) they've done nothing but take more stuff away, it used to be if you bought a pass you got free ski check, if you had a midweek pass you could ride Sunday night, parking was first come first serve (AND FREE), the lockers were $1 and there was room to get changed, they very rarely open at 9am (for your safety ?), camping has gone up again, then there's the lines and all that for $69.

Duncan at Baker has never charged for camping or parking and rarely will not open the entire mountain (and if he does there's a discount lift ticket that day) which Stevens does numerous times throughout the year, every year. We only ride during the week (thank god) and we often wonder if the reason some of the chairs aren't running on killer pow days, is because they're saving it for the weekend crowd. Also for years they couldn't even get the snow report right, all we want to know is what fell OVERNIGHT, don't care what fell 24 hrs ago, they've finally started to give a Overnight depth but they can't get that right, what the hell is 9-10", 4-7" pick one

I'd be pretty pissed if I were camping up there right now and only TWO chairs are running ? I'm sure there are plenty of employees up there to open the front side.

I'll continue to ride there for the location, the terrain and the PNW POWDER, because they'll never take the stoke of snowboarding out of me.
How about when they say they are planning a 10 o clock opening, so you leave at 6, then wait in line at milepost 58 at the road closure, only to have them tell you they won't open the road until one PM.

But you know the pass is open until 4, so you wait it out, only to find out at 12:10 that stevens pass will be closing the resort at 1pm.

WTF.


Why did I wait for 5 hours today?

J.Schaef Every pow day I've been up, they have had all the lots blocked off, and are parking the people who get there first (me, 7am) at the furthest lots.

Been parking in the top lot for years now, never seen anything like this year.

Supposedly the pass is closed this morning. Debating whether I want to try and make the drive, wait in the traffic line or not.

Clayton Bigsby J Schaefer; what's up with the parking ?

I went up Monday it wasn't bad, but I get there an hour before opening, what time are you talking about ?
