I had today off, and I didn't find out about it until last Friday, when a coworker informed me. We planned to go snowboarding, but after checking the conditions at Stevens Pass, we wound up not going.
I'm bummed - it is already the first week of January and I haven't gone snowboarding yet! Stevens didn't even open until the last week of December and my friend who went said it was passable but they definitely could use more snow.
There are other resorts in the area - Crystal Mountain near Mt. Rainier has better conditions, and so does Mt. Baker, east of Bellingham. Both are a bit further than Stevens Pass, which makes for a long day trip.
Instead of snowboarding, I went for a short bike ride just to get outside in the sunny, clear day.
