"Also a moderate
Puget Sound convergence should enhance snowfall near Stevens
Pass Saturday morning, and near Snoqualmie Pass Saturday
afternoon..." (from NWAC)

Hopefully it's a little more like a sno-cone and a little less like a slurpy this weekend.

I have rules, and one of those rules is no winter sports after March 1 of any year. For me Spring starts tommorow! The snowboard is back in storage until after Obama is the new President!

Crap -- suppose dto drive a vanload of kids up to Snoqualmie to go snowtubing on Sunday and I don't have snow tires or 4 wheel drive....

Isn't it spelled "hella"? "Hella high"? Yeah, I think that's right.

@2 that is the most retarded thing i have ever heard!

spring riding is the best! in the afternoon, when the snow warms up and gets soft and you can ride in nothing more than a long sleeve t-shirt. or being at the top of baker and seeing the beautiful view under full sun of the icy, blue glacier capped peak next door.... then rolling down to the lodge for a black butte porter apres ride.

that is what getting out in the pnw is all about!

I'd say mid-april is a better stopping point, but who knows, a few more storms and we could be riding at alpental until may!

Aren't you in Columbus Dan, the home of the sixth largest gay community in the US. Why pay attention to our lowly forecast?

I can't wait. I still have a few tickets to Crystal from the snoqualmie pass, I'd love go up there and try thier new backcountry if we get a big dump!

There's something about the phrase, "the big dump" that just seems disturbing to me....

Dan on his knees? What else is new?

Oh yeah, I said it.
