Timberline Lodge, OR:
Base Depth — 21″ (*lodge) | 24 Hour — 7″ | 48 Hour — 10″ | Season — 127″
Timberline will commence its full winter operations starting today. No more weekday closures– it’s full on @GovernmentCamp. Needless to say, snow forecasted through tonight on top of 7″ will make for amazing weekend conditions.

49 Degrees North, WA (*Wildcard):
Base Depth — 18″ (*summit) | 24 Hour — 3″ | 48 Hour — 3″ | Season — 29″
This one is our wildcard for temperature reasons. According to NOAA, snow levels will rise today with oncoming moisture that’s being accompanied by high temps. That said, upper elevations at 49 Degrees North should see decent accumulation. That said, the top 5 turns might be completely different than the bottom 5 turns.
“We’re ready for the 2017-18 Season, are you? Today’s the day!” – 49 Degrees North
