Early Snows Result in Earliest Northwest Ski Opening in 11 Years

Snow has resulted in the earliest ski opening in the Pacific Northwest since Nov. 5, 1994.

Mount Baker has three feet near the summit.

An article in USA Today notes:

November is typically one of Washington’s wettest months of the year, said Gary Schneider, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service’s Seattle office. The seasonal forecast calls for a “neutral year.”

“Historically, neutral years tend to be more active than not,” Schneider said. “In other words, you get more weather — not less. Around here, more weather means wetter.”
