Woman dies: A woman who was dug out of an avalanche at Red Mountain yesterday died, according the King County Sheriff’s Office. The search for a missing 60-year-old hiker on nearby Granite Mountain, where another avalanche hit yesterday, has been suspended because of heavy snowfall. The woman had been walking with her dog in the Snoqualmie Pass area when the avalanche hit. She was carried down the mountain by rescuers and had injuries and hypothermia.

More snow: Light snow is forecast for Cascade Mountain passes today, and both Snoqualmie and Stevens Pass will be closed for part of the morning for avalanche control.

MS Walk: Look for thousands of people walking on the Burke-Gilman Trail between the Husky Stadium and Gasworks Park. They are raising money for research into multiple sclerosis.
