‘Think snow!’: Washington ski resorts open this week

As winter weather settles in, Washington ski resorts have started to open.

The Summit at Snoqualmie posted some pictures on Sunday from opening weekend.

“We’re looking forward to another winter full of good times on the snow!” it wrote.

Summit West is closed on Monday and Tuesday and will reopen for the rest of the week on Wednesday. Each location has unique hours, go here for updates.

“We plan to open more areas as soon as snow depth and conditions allow. The Tubing is on standby as well. Stay tuned for updates this week... And THINK SNOW!” said the summit.

Stevens Pass is set to open Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Stevens Pass said Daisy, Brooks, and Skyline will be spinning but to expect early-season conditions and limited grooming.

“Please ski and ride with caution. We’ll open additional terrain as conditions allow,” said the pass.

The pass will have dining like the T-Bar, Cascadian Kitchen, Bull’s Tooth, Trailside Snack Shack, and the Foggy Goggle.

The first chair banner break will be on Brooks.
