Spreefest is this weekend at Summit West. We're not sure if you've seen, but the Wilsons are back and their fundraising dollars are pouring in! You may remember this family from last year's event; they are very active in the Outdoors for All community.
Shredding for Ben is currently in second place for fundraising and has raised $8,170 so far. They have already quadrupled their fundraising from last year and we are a few days away from the event! CLICK HERE TO DONATE.

Hello Skiers & Boarders,
Light snow showers for the day today, with gusty east winds forming late today and tonight. On Friday a trough of low pressure will be to our south and during the day move to the east. This will bring periods of snow on and off Friday for the daytime and into the evening. This pattern generally brings more snowfall to the South Cascades and East Cascades compared to areas like Snoqualmie and Stevens Passes.
The map below is accumulated snowfall for the period ending Friday afternoon. Places in the South Cascades and East Cascades will get more snowfall than the West Cascades. Thus, great snow at Crystal Mountain Resort, White Pass, Mission Ridge, 49 Degrees North, and Silver Mountain Resort.
Light snow early Saturday morning. Then for most of the weekend, a weak ridge of high pressure will briefly be in place to bring just light snowfall for Saturday and Sunday. Later on Sunday, a weather system moves in to bring some powder on Sunday night and into Monday. See our extended outlook below.
Starting Sunday night and into Monday, forecast models show up to 12 inches of snow with snow levels at 2000 feet. Then, additional snow for Tuesday and Wednesday with continued low snow levels.
