With more storms in the weekend forecast, it’s good news for folks wanting to head to the slopes before the holiday next week.

Here is a brief rundown of what you might find at the Cascade areas, based on this morning’s reports:

Mount Baker: The base is almost a mid-season levels, with 74 inches at the Heather Meadows base. More snow is expected through Sunday.

Stevens Pass: Even with new snow, the area is recommending folks stay on the groomed runs.

Summit at Snoqualmie: Even with just two lifts open, the area is reporting powder conditions. Powder, in November!?!?

Crystal Mountain: The area has received 3-4 feet of snow since Monday. The area plans to have short Northback and South Country open this weekend.

White Pass: The area was reopening today and hopes to begin daily operations, as long as conditions allow.

Mission Ridge: The area has built a base of 11 inches and hopes to open in time for Thanksgiving weekend.
