The slopes at Summit West open this weekend for the first time of this season.
“Opening day, it’s always exciting. It’s what we live for around here,” said Guy Lawrence, marketing director at the Summit at Snoqualmie.
Five lifts at the Snoqualmie ski resort will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
Ski officials at the Summit are cautioning skiers to look ahead and watch for both marked and unmarked hazards, as the snow depth is still low.
Mount Baker, Crystal Mountain and Stevens Pass are already open for skiing and snowboarding.
The Summit is opening four days earlier than it’s 70-year average.
Federal forecasters say December to February may be colder and wetter in parts of the northern U.S. due to a La Nina weather pattern.
