    Stevens Pass?

    I know it is early, but with Whistler opening tomorrow (17th) it seems that Stevens has been really quiet. Just a little eager to get back up there.

    The web cam shows a lot of snow at the resort. The part opening at Whistler this weekend is a lot lower elevation.

    When they do open, I hope they will be open Friday's! I plan on taking every other Friday off work to go to Stevens.

    I was just talking to one of the bike patrol members earlier this week, he said it's going to quite some time still due to how much snow they have. Sounds like they greatly cut back the chainsaw crew this year too.

    I'm sure they'll be open Fri-Sun. The dude with the weird beard (Joel?) must be on vacation or something. The bike park website & FB pages said on April 20th or so a Bike Park Update would be sent the following week. Still waiting on that.........

    I didn't go up there in late Sep/Oct. Did Lichen It get finished all the way down to the lift? If so that means the crew should be digging the advanced jump line as soon as they can. Anyone know if there are any other new trails in the plans?

    Went over the pass last weekend to hit Tres, and saw quite a bit of snow at Stevens still. Should be melting fast with this weather though.

    The warm weather sure will help. It just seems like last year there was much more buzz about Stevens, starting with the bike expo ( I did not see their booth this year) Face Book, bike shops and even talk on this site. The web site does mention more info in April yet as posted above, nothing but crickets. I should just quit whining. I have 4 days at Whistler in June. It will open when it opens I guess.

    Well, I went for a little after work ski this week. That 44 inches is more like 80 at the top of Cowboy Mountain. It's going to be a while, especially with the cheap new ownership not paying for much trail clearing. They were building out the infrastructure on the top of the lift when I went by.

    Finally a little blurb on FB.
    They're offering season passes for 199+tax

    Season Passes On Sale & Spring Update | Stevens Pass Bike Park

    From the site
    "Conditions permitting, we plan to open our three existing trails right away then continue work on two new trails this summer; an advanced jump trail that flows off of Rock Crusher and a beginner single track trail that will span over 2 miles from the top of Hogsback toward Tye Mill."

    Uhh, isn't Lichen It a beginner single track? On the whole I'm excited for them to open!
