Friday Snow Totals, Crystal Opening Too?

The Seattle Times has a roundup of recent snowfall activity, Storm soaks area as skiers cheer snow forecast:

Mount Baker: “at least a foot”
Snoqualmie Pass: “several inches”
Stevens Pass: “several inches”
Crystal Mountain: “several inches”

But the big news is that Crystal is also considering opening this coming week:

Crystal Mountain ski area also was considering an opening day late next week if enough snow falls from a series of cold fronts expected over the next several days.

And the National Weather Service thinks that Larry is little bullish on his predictions:

Schick, a part-time weather forecaster, predicted at least 2 to 3 feet — and possibly up to 5 feet — in the Cascades over the next 7 to 10 days.

Mike McFarland, a National Weather Service meteorologist, said that might be on the high side, but he confirmed plenty of snow was on its way. A series of cold fronts are moving in, and the one expected to arrive Wednesday could dump enough snow for some ski areas to open, he said.
