Opening week

Hyak kicked off its season on Monday, Dec 26th. Conditions were fun with about 6" of fluffy dry over last weeks rain crust. Temps in the low 20's so snow was good all day, never heavied up. Forecast for the week is for 2'-3' more snow.

Hyak opens tomorrow

Hyak kicks off the season tomorrow morning!  Tomorrow night they are expecting a foot of snow to fall, bummer I will miss out.  Temps are still hanging cold, in the low 20s during the day for the most part.

Opening weekend

Epic snow for the first weekend.  All areas (except Hyak) were open, even night skiing was going. Coverage is good and the snow doesn't get much better.  Temps in the low 20's and around 2' of snow fell from fri - sunday. A skier died at Alpental Sunday, falling into a tree well.  The snow is fun, but it is also a dangerous time.  Temps are predicted to fall to around zero this weekend so it should be a chill'n one.
