Hello Skiers & Boarders,

Starting later today, the main part of the storm track and snow will be to our south. With this pattern, we are expecting dry conditions with sun breaks on Monday. Tuesday, an area of low pressure will be off the Washington/Oregon coast bringing some gusty winds at times for the mid and upper slopes. The map below is for Tuesday morning, showing wind gusts of 40 mph (gold colors) at times. However, the good news is that, during the morning, we can expect some sun breaks. Then late in the day on Tuesday and into early Wednesday, some moisture moves in from the south to bring light snow (2 to 4 inches) by Wednesday morning for Crystal Mountain Resort, White Pass, and Mission Ridge. After the morning snow, the rest of Wednesday and Thursday will be dry.



Extended Outlook
We will have a return of snow for the upcoming weekend on Saturday, April 1. The map below shows the total snowfall for the day on Saturday with most areas getting 4 inches (blue colors) and other areas 8 inches. Models suggest additional snow for next Sunday, April 2. We will update this on Thursday, March 30 with the happy totals.

The Resort plans to stay open for skiing and snowboarding beyond our previously scheduled closing date of April 9th, operating weekends further into April for as long as the snow conditions and excitement of our guests continue.
