It’s starting to look a bit like ski season at Crystal Mountain and White Pass.
“It won’t be long now,” reads Crystal’s mountain report, “ski season is just around the corner.”
Crystal reports a snow depth of 8 inches, including 5 inches since Sunday. Early Tuesday on its Instagram page, White Pass reported 14 inches of snow at the top of its Great White Express lift. Webcams for both still show bare slopes at the base area.
Webcams show a dusting of snow atop Alpental at the Summit at Snoqualmie, but it was raining on Snoqualmie Pass on Tuesday, with more rain in the forecast.
The National Weather service predicts snow and rain at Crystal and White Pass for the remainder of the week.
Western Washington ski areas typically open in late November.
