Making Tracks at Washington Pass

There's two feet of snow at Washington Pass, which sits at 5500 feet and is 30 miles from home.    For the past week, a good Samaritan has taken a snowmobile and track-setter up to the pass and laid down a short loop.

Each year the first skiing for us is at Washington Pass.    This is the northern-most road across the north Cascades in Washington State.    The highway closes for the season almost every year, and I will be surprised if it remains open another week, since cold temps and more snow are expected almost every day through the extended forecast.

In the next few weeks, skiers will be heading to West Yellowstone and SilverStar Mountain for the annual ski camps.     Lots of new snow has arrived at both locations in the past couple days, and it looks like it should be a great week of skiing for everyone!
