Either way its going to be awesome. Hanging out with my high school buddies, reliving the glory days and all that. And as far as concrete cascades, im in the midwest now and these hills get crazy, crazy ice!
I sure hope it dumps for you, I couldnt imagine riding what you have to ride, but it's better then a stick in the eye.

Hitting Stevens Friday

As an alternative, you could do a day at Mission Ridge as well, which is like what, another hr past Stevens? Small mountain, but good terrain and cheaper lift tix too.

I haven't been to Baker or Stevens but have spent a significant amount of time at Snoqualmie and Crystal.

Alpental is amazing, it packs a lot of craziness into a tight package off chair 2 and since it's smaller you can get more repetition or mix-it up a lot more. It also has a nice little back country area that's really fun.

I definitely loved Crystal too!

If you're on vacation, at least Snoqualmie and Alpental are way closer to Seattle if you want things to do away from the mountain.

Heading up to Stevens Friday, looks like it's going to be killer, NOAA is saying 17 - 31" new by Friday 24 degrees. With that much new the entire mtn should be open, a couple runs you should look into is 7th Heaven first run, then head towards Tye for a couple quick lap powder turns, then at the top of Tye head to your right towards Corona Bowl and hang out on the backside for awhile.

Damn! Stevens on Friday will be nice. That is one nice looking forecast.

Snoqualmie is getting hit pretty hard this week too. I hope they can open on Saturday.

I live close to snoqualmie and the passes are cheap so that's where I ride the most. No doubt that Baker/Stevens/Crystal are better than snoqualmie from an overall standpoint, but Alpental is pretty bad ass. It's got some of the best terrain around. The only problem is it is accessible by just one two man chair, so the lines on powder days get out of control.

It also has some really good BC stuff that is just a traverse away from the chair….no hiking needed.

I believe Tye opened last weekend or earlier this week, 7th opened today, and they'll be operating one lift in Mill Valley tomorrow. I'll be up there tomorrow.

while I agree hitting Crystal would as well would be epic. I agree with the others that an extra day at Baker is required. Its just too big for only one day.

No matter what this is going to be an awesome trip. Again thanx for the support and info from the locals.
