So far, none of the local ski resorts have announced opening dates, although, this does take us one step closer to shredding the slopes. Mount Baker Ski Resort is already predicting a good possibility of opening as early as mid-next week, expecting to receive up to four feet of snow during these next three days.
Mount Ranier and Stevens Pass will be seeing a foot less of snow, expecting to receive 18 inches to three feet of snow, while Snoqualmie Pass will see four to ten inches.
