    Made 3 laps at 49 on Saturday with a group of 7 like minded individuals (Silver Ridge to king and queen). Great snow quality but not much of it. Didn't hit anything but mowed down grass/brush. Had a ton of fun but they really could use another foot before the limited opening.

    To be fair, this was before the decent snow that fell Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday. It was nuking when we left at 2pm. So coverage now may be double what I skied...

    Yeah, my buddy said itís not bad, but still need to be careful.

    Btw, ever hike up there in the summer? Good way to scout lines for rocks, etc. Silver Ridge is pretty much rock free.

    Yeah, Silver ridge is the only run I have good confidence skiing in super low tide conditions, it's pretty well manicured

    49 is definitely opening on Friday but I'm sure it's limited. Really not a great amount of new snow in the forecast for later this week so, could be really limited.

    People who ski Lookout affectionately refer to that place as "LooksSoPowdery". Everyone else calls it "LooksSoFlat".

    Personally, I love it there. They get the best snow in the region and its super fun in the trees, pretty flat otherwise, north side is a little steeper, but it takes a lot of snow to work (i.e. stumps).

    2013/14 Inland PNW thread

    Leavenworth skier, kai_ski and NW_skier rolled into my place Friday night to organize an assault on Lookout pass Saturday. Once we had a plan in place from the help of some good whiskey and picking up some ideas from watching Numinous, we contacted mooseknuckles and explained the mission, he exclaimed, "In, brah". Saturday morning we loaded up the battle wagons at 0730 with appropriate tools for the job ranging in waist sizes from 73 all the way up 128, even had a (gasp) snowboard , you just never know.
    Upon arrival we evaluated the target and decided to storm the face and conquer the objective. We left no survivors. Mission accomplished.

    Yeah, we had fucking fun!

    Why to hit it fellas. I gotta hit Lookout Pass someday. Looks like a fun hill.

    Anybody know whether RV/campers can park overnight?

    It's great. Nothing radgnar but also some good pitches of skiing. Plus it's cheap and has an awesome relaxed fun vibe. Looks like good touring across the street too.

    The expansion they are planning in the next few years is going to open up some amazing skiing both inbounds and backcountry.

    Camper parking is in the far end of the lot a few feet from the lift. Free, no hookups.

    For last nights Can't Wait To Ski Party my Bella was wearing her Lookout Pass bandana.
    Yes, they were Very helpful with parking my rig for the night.

    I am hoping to do another WA road trip this year. This time I have my passport so will definitely visit Red.

    Thanks. We're planning a couple camper trips in Jan/Feb to hit small inland PNW areas, e.g., Bluewood, 49N, Lookout Pass, Anthony Lakes, Spout Springs. (I've hit all of them except Lookout. All would be new for Honey.) We did a quick hike over and around Lookout Pass ski area this summer while passing through. Looks like a nice little area.

    ETA: I'm also hoping to slay the Badger this season. Keep me in the loop re any mag meetups at Badger.

    Bluewood and 49n are on my list this year. My mission pass has reciprocal benefits with those hills (as well as Lookout) so it makes it easy to go ski there. Not that bad of a drive from central Wa either.

    Don't drive by Silver Mountain, Steve. Super sleeper with great terrain and vibe. Free camping in the lot. No hookups though.

    We got a glimpse of it on the drive down, I think it looks pretty fun.
