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.

Snow Reporter's Comments

December 8, 2016: We've got another cold one on our hands! It's quite chilly up here today, and the winds have been getting kind of gusty lately so be sure to layer up. It might be really cold on the mountain, but that cold air is helping to maintain the great snow conditions out there. Snow conditions are very similar to yesterday; fantastic groomed runs with packed powder on the side and maybe even a few small powder stashes. Cold dry snow that's easy to carve. The weather is already starting to change, what was clear sunny skies this morning is starting to shift, the clouds are rolling in. The forecast is calling for the next round of storms to roll in sometime later today or tonight. Summit West will be open 9a - 4p today, then 4p - 10p tomorrow night for our first taste of skiing under the lights this season. But wait! There's more! Summit Central opens Friday and Alpental opens Saturday. Read the operations update

Early season conditions do exist, so please ski and ride with care. Watch for unmarked obstacles and marked hazards. Considering all the deep dry snow we received earlier this week, it's also very important to ski with a partner and always maintain visual contact. Be wary of tree wells and deep snow. Click here for more deep snow and tree well safety info. Take it easy out there, everyone is looking forward to a long, fun winter!

Now that winter has arrived in the mountains 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.
