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 21, 2018: Afternoon Update: After starting the day with firm snow, both on- and off-piste, the hills finally started to loosen up around noon. It didn't heat up quite as fast as it did last week, but luckily we were able to enjoy some sunbreaks through the clouds (and even a couple of light snow showers). Now it's nice and warm and we can enjoy spring snow until the sun goes down. Speaking of the sun going down, this is the last week of night skiing, so you may want to take advantage of these last opportunities for laps under the lights. Tonight, specifically, is the last night of Hump Day Heaters in Central Park. You don't want to miss this one.
Morning Report: It's a brisk, partly cloudy morning here on Snoqualmie Pass. Forecasts are calling for partly cloudy skies through the morning with light rain (maybe some flakes) developing in the afternoon. We do have snow in the forecast as we round past Thursday into the weekend. Keep up the snow dances and come enjoy some spring skiing in the meantime! We're open at Central and Alpental today. See you up here for some midweek laps!
Alpental Notice: Please stay out of Elevator Gate, there are lingering climax avalanche hazards in that area. Climax in this case means that every layer of snow from the ground up will release.
The roadway is mostly bare and dry
