They come up by the bus load from the bay area. But northstar is ok, they have one of the best parks, but if your looking for pow and terrain, I would look at alpine or squaw, all three resorts are pretty close to each other, heck squaw just took over alpine, now all they need is a lift to connect the two.
I want a really good park with just a chance at good pow. Squaw looks like the pow place though. Have you been to Powder Mountain, because I want to go there for a trip but Squaw looks like a better chance of pow, anyone know?

Direct from the Mt. Baker website -- The snow is beginning to accumulate at the ski area, with 11 inches falling last week and 5 inches falling Monday night.
The big news, however, is the forecast for this coming weekend and next week; the National Weather Service Forecast Office issued the following forecast Tuesday at 3:30 pm:
"...snow will fall in the mountains through much of the period Saturday through Tuesday. There may not be any one period with heavy snow . . . but each weather system will bring snow . . . and the moist northwesterly flow will encourage snowfall whether or not there is a short wave moving through it. By the middle of next week the Cascades and Olympics should have plenty of snow . . . with little or no prospect of it melting until late spring."
Please, oh please, let this be true. Last year I had already ridden a few times by now. I'm jonesing for some snow dammit! It's time to ride!
Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

Wondering when La Nina is going to kick in. Those pics are encouraging, but I was already splitboarding for fresh pow by this time last year and even earlier (October 5) the year before. Still, it's a good sign!
yea but Dec thru mid feb really sucked. March and april were great. I want it to be great for 5-6 months. damit
