General Comments

Happy Presidents' Day weekend Friday. This holiday is tied, in the Northwest, with the planting of snow and snap peas in gardens. No planting of seeds will be happening up here; we just made it over the 100" base mark yesterday, and it'll take a long time before green grass, wildflowers and huckleberries return to the slopes. Instead, we encourage you to come up today and plant the seeds of fresh, healthy, nurturing memories. Much like those fresh-pickable snap peas you could plant in the valley today, turns on the mountain will provide you with nutrition (vitamin D from the daylight), conditioning (from the exercise), and relaxation (from time spent in nature). We're here 9am-9pm today with Jenny Lee strumming some live music this evening in the Alpenstube. We're digging out Cascade, evaluating Heather and PR, and are packing down some epic packed powder corduroy. Traction tires are required. See you soon for happy snow-filled nurtritious memories!
