    SL didn't go as high as forecasted last night so that's good. Last week at one point when I looked I think it was 49 at Snoqualmie Pass. Maybe a bit less scouring of creek beds with this system and at least heavy snow up top. Glass half full you know.....well, everything is all the way full right now..

    Good for the glaciers??

    It's a subject on my mind as I've been mapping a glacier traverse in GPWA for this summer. Lyman Lake (5980') has 130" and Easy Pass (5270') has 136", which are average or a bit above average for this time of year. OTOH, Rainy Pass has only 99" and Harts Pass 114". As last year, so far WA Pass not getting as much love as central Cascades, GP area and western NCNP. Too early to say what it'll all mean for May/June touring and summer mountaineering, of course. Temps and sun in April, May and June are historically as important as snowfall in March and April.

    That's not an east wind that's blowing, and no, I can't explain why it's cold enough to be snowing. But I can tell you that my drive into the lowlands for a round of meetings today was an absolute shitshow. Downtown Issaquah is flooding, glad the office is in Eastgate and I could cruise past on the highway.

    WA Pass total snow sensor hasn't been working correctly for a while. It's been snowing very consistently (as opposed to raining) over there and the reported number keeps staying around 84". This storm should deliver at least foot at the Pass level by Sunday. And I plan to smash as much of it as I possibly can. The folks who have heli seats booked on Sunday are in for an all time experience.

    That doesn't look too good for the base.

    I'd like to state my uninformed opinion as fact on this topic:

    Crystal will for sure open tomorrow (unless CMB gets hit with a mudslide). And it will snow enough schmoo to cover any crust above 5000'.

    Balls deep in the excavated foundation I was looking at this morning. Unfortunately I had knee high boots on.
    Set my compass North, I got Winter in my blood.

    I could be wrong, but I’m hoping for Sunday.
