How to Read Our Snow Data Above
Snowfall amounts for 12hr (overnight), 24hr, and 48hr timeframes are based on measurements taken at 5am daily. 24hr and 48hr snow totals are cumulative, so whatever fell in the last 24 is built into the 48. Between 5pm and 5am our weather data is automatically updated based on telemetry data from Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center and represents our overnight totals. The "Since 5am" snowfall amount is based on manual measurements taken periodically throughout the day.

March 25, 2017: Snow this morning has been dense and heavy, making for good turns on groomed runs and in untracked areas. The forecasts for today call for 1”-3” of new snowfall but, the temperatures are rising, and we have seen a lot of sunbreaks on the upper mountain at Alpental. High traffic areas are getting hard packed and the snow is riding fast wherever you go. My recommendation is to stick to groomed runs and take advantage of Summit East’s closing weekend for some casual cruising over there. Or, go to Alpental, check out the Alpental Freeride Open happening under the chair on the upper mountain, and search out some dreamy cream snow turns. If thrills are your thing, head to the Central terrain park for your share of jibs and airs. Wherever you choose to cruise, have fun out there!
With winter in top gear it's very important to check the WSDOT for information about road and weather conditions over Snoqualmie Pass and be prepared for possible winter travel conditions, closures, and delays.
