    There's not a ton of snow being early season, yes rain happens around here (more than we'd like to admit) and yes our hills do close on certain washout days.
    5-10 day forecasts are precarious in the PNW.

    This actually communicates freezing levels, often the most important variable with a wet storm. Reading the discussion can be invaluable for understanding long range uncertainty.

    is BROD a thing?


    Wfx for tomorrow is hovering around 4200 for freezing level. This is 3900. Usually it barely accumulates at the forecasted freezing level, and might be snow in the air below but more wet than white

    Thats all it does. It rains so much that many of use have full on PVC fisherman suits that get used every year so we can enjoy raincorn conditions. I have never heard of another area or buncha local kooks that have a named condition called "raincorn", not look forward to it like the folks here.

    Not everyone "looks forward to it." I don't ski when it rains. There are other activities that can be done when freezing levels are high and it's pissing. Kayaking, surfing, mountain biking, fishing, snow free valley floor rain forest hikes, getting fucked up and doing city things, driving to Canada and praying you get above freezing levels. While the PNW lacks the consistency of the Rocky Mountains, I still think we ski just as much powder here as anywhere. Just pick your times and realize there will be one to two week periods in winter you don't ski. Once late February rolls around it rarely rains in the mountains (storms more likely to track out of the Gulf of Alaska then and be cold).

    I think you are going to need drive down to Paradise at Rainier if you are dead set on skiing on Monday. Maybe Heliotrope on Baker if you don't want to make the drive (although currently 4.5 miles from road wash out to normal summer parking spot; https://www.wta.org/go-hiking/trip-r...-09.1852178836). Go on a sunny day so you can go high.

    Who the fuck books a November Western PNW ski trip and expects good conditions, or even to ski at all?

    Maybe Im missing something.

    Have not. Got a baker, Taos, beaver, pine Creek and Indy pass.

    Ski trip? Who the fuck takes ski trips. I just ski all winter and don't work.

    But, you are planning to ski in the fall in the PNW.

    Id suggest you wait for winter, or look Inland WA/ID on the Indy Pass this weekend. But, YMMV. Godspeed.

    I think by the weekend there may be some cooler storms that actually leave some cold snow at Baker *if* the forecast comes true.
    Thursday looks like good weather for a tour above today's rain line for the ambitious, I plan to eat food and hang out instead
