Earliest snowfall in 14 years dusts Stevens Pass, Washington

A beautiful spot. I’ve skied this area many times. See very short video.

4 Oct 2018 – A brief storm left two inches of snow at Stevens Pass on Tuesday, Oct. 2, 2018, the earliest snowfall in at least 14 years.

The snowfall was due to an unusual gust of cold northern air coming from Alaska and Canada, the National Weather Service said.

  1. I grew up skiing at Stevens Pass. I am currently 25 miles east of Stevens at Lake Wenatchee. It is a bit cooler than “normal” for early October, from what I have seen in my 38 years of living in and visiting Washington State. Last year Stevens had abundant snowfall. Hoping for another great ski season in the Cascades.

  2. Yep…it was cold this last week.
    When we first moved to Idaho (26 years ago) I learned a good lesson….IF YOU are not ready for winter by the 15 of October (i.e. wood, critter feed, put summer tools away, exterior repairs and the such), you wont have time before the freeze and snow arrives.
