I can now asnwer my own query: Yes it is. And although it's never been very good, it is especially terrible at the moment.

Why do I bother with a pass? Allow me to answer that as well: because I can't stomach handing over cash at the ticket window when all I have time for is a few laps 45min from my house. That hill should be $45 max. The folks that make it up to Alpie on powzer Tuesdays are the only ones doin it right.

rant over...

Yeah I feel you there, I bought my first seasons pass this year for Snoqualmie and its just been terrible. Last year was pretty freaking awesome and I was an idiot and assumed it would be similar.

Yeah we got spoiled last year. Mercifully, it looks like snow is on the way next week.

I'm in the same boat. Bought my first season pass this year after forking over Monet every time last season. Only thing that keeps me going is the fact I get a veteran discount and bought it early so price was low. I went up last Wednesday it was like -5 with windchill. I blame there grooming, they groomed everything trying to pack the snow down to keep it longer. When I went over a roller on the back side of it where the groomer couldn't get it was soft.

Last Wednesday was miserable. My class consisted of one kid, and he didn't want to be outside because it was too cold. Lol But, this Wednesday should rad! I'm stoked that some storms are finally rolling through! :D Might actually give me a good reason to make some night trips up after work.

Normally try and get up there Wed night, but in typical Snoqualmie fashion a promising week has turned into rain/snow. Looks like snowlevels are going to bounce between 3500 and 5000 until Thurs PM. Lame.

Somone tell me I'm wrong and it's going to be good....please

I'll let you guys know how it is later today, I've got some night classes up there.

Brutal that I've got to go to qualmie when Stevens has 17" of fresh...

Fergatron2000 02-11-2014 10:26 PM

I'm assuming it was wet ad rainy this evening....?

Snoqualmie has sucked so bad this yr I've been going to White and Stevens instead even though I have a season pass at Snoqualmie. Today White was Pretty good basically had the place to myself and Knee deep fresh snow but it was heavy stuff, also FYI... White is selling full day tickets to Snoqualmie pass holders for $25.... still and from what it sounded like they probly would be for awhile.
