Hey what's up guys and gals! Anyone heading up for a sesh at Stevens or Snoqualmie this weekend(or any for that matter)? I'm new to the area and I don't know too many people out here. Surfing is my background but I'm digging the snow big time...would be awesome to have a couple people to ride with. I have a pass to Snoqualmie and a few days left at Stevens. Any other weekend worriers out there? Let's take a few laps together...

What kind of pass do you have to snoqualmie? I'm in the lodge at snoqualmie right now and the snow is awful, it's straight ice everywhere. It's really really bad. But luckily it's supposed to snow for like 3 days starting friday! That should fix it

brystephor- Unlimited pass! Icy, oh yeah, I went up on Sunday and it definitely needs some snow..steep stuff was challenging, groomers were ok, but hard....I'm seriously looking forward to some snow this weekend!! It's only been a couple weeks, but I want more powder turns! You going up this weekend?

Argo - I'm planning to head to Stevens either Saturday or Sunday (leaning toward Sunday). Would be sick to catch up if you're out there...I've been to Stevens a handful of times, some knowledge of the mountain, love the backside but still exploring new areas!

I've been invited by a friend of mine for snoqualmie on Saturday but my LTD pass doesn't cover alpental on weekends, and that's where I'd wanna go. Id be willing to try out summit east however, i hear it has some good runs. I may head up to snoqualmie on Saturday though, not sure. I usually only plan about an hour ahead

brystephor - I hear ya...hey east is always a blast, mellow, quiet and doesn't get skied out Mon-Fri. And I think Alpental still needs a nice refresh, Tuesday should be better there anyways lol! But yeah I guess post something on here or send me a message or something if you end up heading out Saturday? I'm thinking I may do Snoqualmie on Saturday and Stevens on Sunday

Mind if I ask where you live? And do you do only weekends? I'm a big week day person. No job, no physical class time, but an LTD pass and a snow resort is an hour away so guess where I spend my time. And alpental I bet needs a new refresh to. I just prefer it there overall.

East is a lot of fun. Some good riding off of the Rampart chair that has never been very busy when I've been there. I'm planning on being at Alpental Friday afternoon/night. I'll probably try to convince Wifey to get out to East or Silver Fir early on Sunday, too.

Is east closer to being like alpental or is closer to being like summit central? I really like alpental for its terrain and longer runs and that's something summit central has none of. Maybe I'll have to just go snowboarding all tbis weekend since it seems like that's what everyone else is doing, id love to meet some new people.

I'm a young fellow if that bothers anyone.

brystephor - I live on the eastside of seattle and occasionally make it up during the week if looks good and I can sneak away from work...East is not like Alpental but worth checking out. And hey I don't care how old you are, as long as you can keep up :)

More along the lines of Central, but a more relaxed vibe. If you're looking for long runs and terrain, nothing else at Summit will compare to Alpental. I'll PM you once I figure out for sure where I'm headed.

Anyone have any thoughts or opinions on Crystal MT on Saturday?
If I'm able to go on Saturday then id be willing to go try out East? A powder day on Saturday would be crazy at Central, and really central is only good for silver fir and their park (I suck in the park, got my park pass today though so I'm gonna slowly be getting better). I'm also what id consider an intermediate rider.
