Go home. There is no skiing here.



Snow is popping up all over. Still not enough to get excited about but you mentioned the obvious places. Rainier from Paradise to Muir is the only one you missed.

Watch out for crevasses on Baker & Rainier. Stay off the glaciers for the most part. Crevasses are barely covered right now.

Snow here is not like the rockies. Deep slush.

Avy danger is much more common due to rapidly changing temps and wet conditions. Still can find powder but you have to jump on it while it is here. It can turn to mush in 12 hrs.

All in all, I prefer the rockies but we do get more snow here. Just pay attention to conditions. Keep the avy report in your favs and keep a running record in your mind. We see old wet layers become slide surfaces weeks later.
