A couple days ago before the rain started, I was smelling snow in the air. It shouldn't be long before we can hit the slopes and apparently the mountains are not very far away from the city in the Seattle area. It will be nice to have such easy access to mountains again. So Seattlites, which mountain is closest, and which is the best? I found this site but it only lists the distances for a couple of the mountains.

Snoqualamie Pass is the closest to Seattle at about an hour away. Stevens Pass is the next closest and offers steeper terrain and generally better snow, 4,000 foot base elevation vs. 3,000.

There's still no snow up in tahoe, and it's way too warm for anything close to snow. (75 deg). Guess we'll have to wait a while until a big storm hits.
