CASCADE SKI CENTER: While predictions for snow don't always come true, we can predict the Full Moon, and it never fails us. So, this Saturday, 1/18 is the first Full Moon Party of the season, starting at 8 PM. Check cascade ski.com for more information.
MOUNT VAN HOEVENBERG: Will reopen on Saturday on a man-made loop. Loppet postponed to March 8.
BACKCOUNTRY: Still 10" of snow at Lake Colden with some fluff on top, but no way of skiing there. Skis or snowshoes not required EXCEPT over 3,500 feet where much of this week's rain del as snow. So full winter gear (crampons and snowshoes, and warm clothing) for any ascent of a High Peak.
