Stevens pass gets slammed with 24" in 48 hours. Lifts will open on Thursday. The moutain preps for opening and locals shred fresh powder.
Pacific Northwest riders have been chomping at the bit to get a piece of Stevens Pass this season, and Mother Nature has obliged. Stevens Pass, tucked away in the heart of Washington’s Cascade Mountains, announced their opening date of Thursday, November 19th.
For the past few weeks, Stevens has been dodging the rain and quickly building up a nice snowpack. All the while, a steady stream of diehard locals has been hoofing it to catch pow turns and pillow lines. But now it’s nearly time to enjoy the creature comforts of hitching a chair ride up to the best stashes. Stevens plans to open most of the front side of the resort on Thursday, including the Top Phlight terrain park with a variety of features.
Everyone loves a pre-Thanksgiving season opener, and the thought of this Thursday at Stevens has got everyone stoked. For more info check out www.stevenspass.com.
