WHITE PASS, Wash.-- With storms dumping feet of snow on the mountain passes this weekend, the start of ski season is getting closer.
Both Bluewood and White Pass Ski Areas are hoping to open at around Thanksgiving this month. Bluewood currently has six inches of snow at its base. White Pass has eight inches at base and fifteen on top.
Forecasters predicted a very dry winter earlier this year, but White Pass says those predictions have changed.
"They're calling it the neutral year. So, neutral years, White Pass typically does very well. So, we're optimistic for sure about good snow coverage throughout the season," said White Pass Spokesperson Kathleen Goyette.
If you want to hit the slopes before our local areas to open, some of the lifts at Timberline in Oregon are already up and running.
