A welcome surprise storm delivered another 4" of new snow yesterday and today we're expecting the clouds to gradually clear, leaving us with crisp and clear conditions, perfect for exploring the mountain and taking in the views from the Summit! The grooming team has been laying out fantastic corduroy and there's plenty of soft turns to be found in off-piste areas. We are excited to host the 2019 Special Olympics Washington Winter Games this weekend and wish the best of luck to all the athletes, their teams and coaches! 10:15 am Update: Cold, fast snow and soon to be blue skies, today is going to be one for the books! The sun is occasionally poking through the clouds. We're expecting them to gradually clear by this afternoon. Temperatures are still quite cold, in the single digits at the summit with a moderate wind, so bundle up and take breaks as necessary to warm up.

Monday 2/25 Forecast

Conditions have been fantastic lately with 10" of snow of the last 48 hours and it continues to snow this morning with 2" of new snow overnight! The forecast is calling for a chance of more snow, so we'll just have to wait and see how much accumulates over the course of the day. It's going to be another excellent day of skiing and riding at the Ridge to close out this stretch of 7-day/week operations! Just as a reminder, we will be closed Tuesday and Wednesday, re-opening Thursday 2/28. 11 am Update: 6" so far for today's storm and 17" in 48 hours. Conditions are deep! It's been a fantastic February and it's not ready to quit. I hope you're all out there having a most excellent pow day!

Good Morning! We have received 5" of new snow overnight and it continues to accumulate as we speak! We're expecting a few more inches this morning to add to the excellent conditions from yesterday. It's going to be another fun day of storm skiing at the Ridge. 11:30 am Update: We have received 2 more inches of snow since 9 am for a total of 7" so far for the storm! The wind has been in effect, so it is drifting and much deeper in places. The runs that were groomed overnight are getting somewhat bumped up but the new snow is so incredibly light it's not too difficult to push through. What an epic February we have had and there's more in the forecast for tomorrow. Have a great POW DAY!

We received 1" of new snow yesterday afternoon and there's a chance for more snow later on. It's a beautiful, clear morning on the Mountain and we're expecting excellent snow conditions on and off-piste today! Tonight, is the final opportunity for Night Skiing for the season from 4-8 pm on Chair 4 and $25 Saturday Night Lessons on the Pika Peak rope tow, the Twilight Snow Shoe Trek leaves the Hampton Lodge at 5 pm and a very special "Gold Night" to close out the 18/19 Mountain Music Series, featuring DJ Mabee, will be in the Hampton Lodge with dinner specials from 6:30-8:30 pm. 11 am Update: The skiing is fantastic today! The corduroy with the new snow infused by the groomers overnight is so smooth and perfect for carving. Off-piste, bumps are still apparent, but due to low temperatures this week there are nearly no crusty spots except in a few places where the underlying base has been in direct sunlight. A few localized flurries are starting to develop, but so far it's still partly sunny and simply a great day to be on the Hill!
