Well, it's off to a pretty shitty start pretty much everywhere in the West.

    Trump's fault.

    Actually, we? already had about a 50 inch base by last Turkey Day when Trump was still POTUS.

    Just a t-bar right? No chairs?

    Yeah, pretty sure. From where I'm at it's about the same drive to there or Crystal. Crystal obviously has far more in terms of runs, but I would guess that Hurricane Ridge is probably light traffic.

    Lol, I don't think you can even call Hurricane Ridge a ski resort. We're talking maybe 400 feet of vertical with a single t-bar. Plus the Olympics snow is even wetter and shittier than the Cascade cement.

    But are there lines to wait for a chair?

    Some call Crystal a top 10 North American Ski Resort. Some do that.

    Finally. A Yella tread I can get behind.

    TYFYS.


    I bought an IKON pass this year. Plan to use it at Crystal, Bachelor, trips booked for Arapaho Basin, and maybe Snoqualmie. I also hate money and bought a local pass for Stevens.


    Highly recommend for skiers/snowboarders in the Puget Sound area to subscribe to an email list by "The Powder Poobah". He is a local meteorologist and ski aficionado. He tracks the weather patterns and is far more reliable for ski forcast than the local news and resorts can hope to be. Legit the only regular email that hits my inbox that I read religiously.

    You posted more about EC than anything in your life, my fren. YWFMS.

    There's nothing that Crystal is Top 10 in in N. America.

    That said, I loved Crystal (pre Ikon debacle) and it's a great hill given proximity to Seattle.

    I didn't say I called it that. And the more I think of it, the list I saw might have been just the US.

    ATBS, it was #10.
