non-motorized winter recreation in the I-90 corridor
Thursday Jan. 27th, 2022
Not much news came in this week! Other than our Sno-Parks are open and plowed
Conditions appear to be very solid and slick in many places.
Salmon La Sac - 01/24/2022 – Conditions are springlike; Grooming has held up well since last week, compact and hard snow; AM temps in upper teens, PM temps low – mid 30’s; there is a small window to scratch the softer snow mid afternoon where the trail gets sun otherwise conditions are icy. We need fresh snow.
Snowshoe tour info found on snowshoe page.
Note from the USFS about their snowshoe program:
Due to the recent spike in Covid-19 Omicron variant cases, Snoqualmie Pass Snowshoe Program operations have been suspended through January 2022. Reservations for the winter are paused while the Forest Service monitors the situation. We will make a decision about the remainder of the season by the end of January."
