Do you remember something about a shortage of snow in Washington’s mountains? Naw. Snow was coming down so fast on Snoqualmie Pass that Interstate 90 was closed in both directions Monday morning. (Get updates here.)
Here are some Monday morning snow statistics for Cascade ski areas:
- Crystal Mountain: About 10 inches fell overnight in Campbell Basin. Still snowing at 9:30 a.m. More than 11 feet of snow fell in February. 115 inches at summit.
- Summit at Snoqualmie: 7 inches overnight and still snowing. 14 inches in 24 hours. Interstate 90 closed Monday morning because of avalanche hazard, heavy snow and fallen trees. 162 inches at top of Alpental.
- Stevens Pass: 12 inches overnight. 20 inches in 24 hours. More than 10 feet fell in 10 days of February.
- Mount Baker: 14 inches overnight. 23 inches in 24 hours. 181-inch base for Pan Dome.
