Waiting for Winter

It’s not too early to Scotchgard your parka, shake the spiders out of your boots, and start craving powder.
Now is the time to scrape up the cash for a season’s pass: prices are low for the Big S pass (good at all four resorts at Snoqualmie) through the end of October. Your bets for early season are Whistler Blackcomb in BC and Oregon’s Mt. Hood—both are already dusted with white. There’s nothing quite like Thanksgiving in the mountains (far from your family).
Stevens Pass has no snow yet, but they do have a beautiful new website. And Crystal just completed the high-capacity Northway chairlift, adding access to 1,000 acres of new north country terrain.
