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.

July 26, 2016: We are closed for the season and regular updates to weather information have concluded. Check our webcams for the most current weather status. The summer is finally heating up and we hope all of you are out enjoying the mountains and beautiful weather! Have fun, we'll see you at SkiBonkers on Labor Day Weekend or when fall movies & events start picking up.
As of April 5th, the top of Alpental has received 610" of snowfall. The first significant snowfall of the season up there was 9" on November 2nd. It's interesting to note that normally we see several substantial storms in April that help carry the lower mountain thru into early May, while this year we have seen only two snow events which delivered less than an inch.
Always remember to check the WSDOT for information about spring and summer construction over Snoqualmie Pass and how that may impact your travel plans.
