A strong winter storm is moving into Northern Cascades today with most ski areas in Washington State set to receive double digit snowfall totals by Wednesday.
Snoqualmie Pass is currently in the lead with up to 32″ forecasted. Crystal and Mt Baker fall just behind with anywhere between 18-24″. Temperatures and snow density will fluctuate depending on the time of day. Best bets for powder will be for the first couple of hours each day before temps begin to affect snow levels up to 7k feet.
