    Watch for winter storm warnings and freezing rain. Also moose. Winter storms are fine. Freezing rain is a bit more of a hazard

    This exactly. 30 deg F with a lot of precip means a ton of snow but a couple degrees the wrong direction and we all know what happens

    I'm forecasting a reasonably strong chance of a Mt Baker point forecast failure setting up?

    re: Yellowhead Highway, I've driven it.

    For anyone looking at a Shames trip, I'd call Hawkair. If you are flexible on the dates, they have some good deals. IIRC, they used to throw a lift ticket in gratis.

    Skiing has been far better than it was in 04/05. It got quite good late in that season though.

    re: baker

    The aviation area forecast is calling for a 5000' freezing level. The 6000' wind is forecast to be due south. Satellite shows a warm front that is going to make landfall this afternoon. Straight up pineapple express.

    I'd like to share nwskier's optimism, but brit's probably right.

    ^^ let's hope this doesn't pan out. I had only looked at the NOAA forecast.

    Either way I'll be at crystal tomorrow if anyone else is desperate enough to be there say hey. Green jacket yellow pants black helmet sally czars.

    I'm guessing you missed the fine print on the Mt Baker NOAA forecast. ABOUT THIS FORECAST: Point Forecast: Mt Baker WA, 48.78°N 121.81°W (Elev. 10070 ft)

    NOAA's forecast is for the actual Mt Baker, not the ski resort (ski resort highest point is 5091 ft)

    Decided to take some time and enjoy the table scraps that Stevens Pass still had to offer today. A few inches of dust on crust, but skied decent enough. Snowing most of the morning, but all felt in vain. Based on the forecast through the weekend, I wouldn't be surprised if they have to close until another real winter storm rolls through. They just don't have much base to give up at this point.

    Fail again at reading the fineprint. While at the top for the current condition, it identifies it at 4200ft, the forecast is for 8236ft:
    "ABOUT THIS FORECAST. Point Forecast: 10 Miles ENE Mt Baker WA 48.83°N 121.6°W (Elev. 8236 ft)
    (this info is under the map)

    This is why so many people get excited and then have their hopes smashed. Pay attention to detail.

    Got it. Do I get points for not looking at the forecast for the mountain it's self?

    At this rate there's not going to be any snow left in a week...

    Are we going to lose any shops after this season? I remember the last go around we lost a few.

    So I unexpectedly have next weekend to myself. Seriously considering driving to Big Sky to get something out of my Snoqualmie pass...

    Glad you got an appt that quick, good luck. Speaking of luck, don't you think a giant set of cold storms should come in right about the time you're ready to go again? Yeah, that sounds good.
    In drove this drunken madman and stopped on a dime! Unfortunately the dime was in Mr. Rococo's pocket!

    Sadly, that looks like a distinct possibility right now.

    I don't mean to bum you out, it's just that I've lived here for a long time and have seen the good and bad.

    As flowing alpy said, Fiorini's lease was gonna double, and they were ready to call it quits regardless.
    Olympic Sports got too big. The North Gate location used to get my money as well.

    With Mt Pilchuck, Marmot and SnoCon already closed up, I think most of the local shops should be able to stay around. If any disappear, my money is on Seattle Ski.

    04-05 was a worse season, too.
