    Looks pretty awesome that it's a longer term class though. Let's you learn the material and retain it much better than a weeklong class.

Or they bought a Stevens day ticket since you can get those for midweek.
    After they wait for alpy patrol to open things at 10:30am.

    Next time convergence storm comes through and Crystal is rain shadowed by Rainier.... about 2 weeks later...

    A few inches of wind blown pow was fast and smooth today. Good to get some more laps on the new chair.

    That pollution is a real bummer. Seems like an otherwise unusually unique spot in thatís itís in the US but very close to Canadian skiing. (Not this year of course.)

    We hiked to Microwave a few times, nice boot top dense snow. Left side Bowl 4 was tits. Get some today, get away from the crowds.

    Yes it's good out there, enjoying every turn.

    Kinda missing the skin up from 3 now that we are back to the sideways walk from the gate.
    Common sense. So rare today in America it's almost like having a superpower.

    Skinning was easier and faster I think.

    I'd guess Mission Ridge. 2,000 acres.

    What does 2000 acres at Mission include? It doesn't feel that big to me. Looking at their special use permit area, it includes a huge amount of terrain that is not lift served (and I'm not talking bowl 4).

    Snow in the PNW 20-21: We may have Corona but Corona doesn't have us!

    Everything in the ski area boundary, not the same as the SUP area. I would guess that a little less than half of the inbounds terrain requires a hike or traverse. Itís bigger than you would think just riding the lifts. I tell people that every thing you can see riding chair two is in the ski area. Follow the ridge line above Chair 4 terrain, across Bowl 4 up to Wenatchee Mtn(Microwave) along Windy Ridge over to the boundary road and across the Bomber Cliffs to Chute 6. Including the ridge separating Lake Creek from Squilchuck Creek(Central Park).

    Some of that isnít technically inside the ski area boundary but they do AC there so itís de facto open terrain. Thereís signs saying so

    Future Chair 5 from the bottom of Wounded Knee to above The Humps will access most of the hike to terrain. I have mixed feelings about that but itís probably best for the longer term viability of the ski area.

    By the time it actually goes in we'll probably appreciate the uplift.

    I traced this perimeter out in Caltopo and it shows 1150 acres. I may not know the terrain like the locals but I can't have missed that much? Don't get me wrong, it's a very fun area, but 2000 acres seems like a huge stretch by any means.

    Donít know, maybe theyíre doing some creative marketing. Your outline seems accurate. Maybe they are using the SUP acreage.

    It’s kind of like the Bermuda Triangle. I’ve noticed the hot spots seem to be more active this season.

    Went to Stevens Pass on Tuesday for the first time in awhile to help find a lost guest, afterwards they gave me a comp pass it was such a cluster it was the first time in my life that I walked away from free skiing. Two lifts opened at noon, giant lines, a large group of instructors cutting the line in front of customers, I donít know how they do it and keep a straight face
