May as well get everyone in one thread together.

This thread is for all things related to STEVENS PASS. Booze, sex, and drug talk highly encouraged.

I'm riding tomorrow (11/24), anyone else going to be up there? I won a 11.5 gram joint from a dispensary so I'm going to need some help tackling this beast :dizzy:

I'm debating whether to go up tomorrow or not. I have a pass, but still not sure if it'll be worth the drive. They got rained on earlier this week which is why there were closed and then we got the freeze, so I'm thinking it is a sheet of ice out there. Plus only 4 lifts open (Daisy, Brooks, Hogs, Skyline) meaning lines will be insane.

I'm in the same boat as you, but it's my weekend and even if the snow is total shit I'll still be able to dick around and have a beer or twelve.

Went Saturday for some groomers. Snow wasn't bad, but the coverage (even on groomers) was getting worse as the day went on. Lift lines weren't terrible, but for the love of God QUAD UP PEOPLE! Is it really that hard? Half the chairs only had 2 people on them.

Here comes the storm!

Monday is looking best, but I'll have to settle for Sunday because of work. Crossing my fingers hoping it doesn't warm up as much as NOAA says it might during the day Sunday.

Been watching the storm move in. Think I am going to head up for a half day tomorrow am. The wife is skipping out of school and I am taking Wednesday off too. Forecast says 8 degrees Wednesday, but it will be nice and sunny.

^^Wish I could, but work calls. Buddy of mine is probably headed to Crystal this morning, seems like the best bet for pow. Kinda worried about how all the rain affected the snowpack at Stevens. From what I saw on the webcam, it looked like a lake at the base yesterday.

That is the only reason I didn't go yesterday. It looked more like the end of the season than the first of December.


I just rearranged my schedule. Gonna head up tomorrow now instead. Hope they keep the back side open tomorrow too :bowdown:

Backside did not open today.... at least not by when I left (maybe 2:45)

I am probably going to head up tomorrow as well. It was a BLOWER pow day all day.

Backside won't be open tomorrow but Big Chief and 7th Heaven will be.

^^^Hit me up if you want to ride or have a safety meeting. I'll check my PM's through the day.

Glad the backside didn't open yesterday, haha. Pretty hellish week at work for me so no go on any time off unfortunately. Conditions look incredible right now though. Just think of how ridiculous it would have been if it didn't rain all day Sunday.....

I'm so envious of all you fuckers...the snow finally started falling again as soon as I went out of town. Hope it keeps up until I get back. Here's what I was doing yesterday, so it's not all bad I guess:

Came back and saw that 11" had fallen, hopefully some of you guys were out there gettin it! Lucked out at Whistler and despite the early conditions I was able to hike to some lines and get fully pitted in some blower pow.

Felt fucking fantastic, but I need my Stevens pow days! Whistler just has no heart... I gave a few yeeews from the chair lift and everyone looked at me like I was going full retard.

How was it for you varth?

I just went yesterday and had to really search to find some fresh. Ended up searching around the Tye Stick area for the first time and found an awesome chute that leads into the area between 7th heaven and Tye. Everything else was pretty much garbage, but those turns made the day worth it.
