Snoqualmie Pass is easy breezy – for now

I’m in Wenatchee right now on my way to Osoyoos, B.C. Just went over Snoqualmie and Blewett passes. Both were in great shape.


To say I wasn’t looking forward to crossing Snoqualmie Pass would be an understatement considering the trouble I-90 has had staying open of late.


The road was bare and wet even though traction tires were required and temperatures were about 30 degrees. It was a bit like driving down a bobsled track however, with snow so high on the side of the roads it was hard to get a good look at the ski areas. Safe to say skiing must pretty good right now.


I only dipped below 60 mph once (I got stuck behind a minivan caravan.)


Snow is coming however, so pass conditions could change soon. Call 511 from your cell for the latest conditions.


I hope to ski Apex tomorrow. I’ll try to post pictures and my thoughts tomorrow night.
