Winter on Snoqulamie Pass

After superbly wonderful last Sunday complete with fresh dry snow and yes – sun, we continue on the roller coaster. It then snowed a bunch of wet snow and now rain. Remember all the water from last weekend? I can imagine it is all still there and a bunch more. If you venture out, be prepared for any condition, Erling can take awhile to drain, so Meadow Loop may still be washed out. It seems we might see a cool down on Friday. Often it can be drier and colder if you head further east.
