Jtack and I skied two short laps in cold snow to Source Lake and then cut the switchbacks to the parking lot. By 11 the snow was warming to knee-wrenching temperature. I think if you want to ski Stevens right now you should start at sunup or earlier. There sure is lots of snow!
Stevens had the keep out sign up, and the parking crew was building berms to keep people out of the upper lot across the street from the ski area. I miss when ski area management still liked skiers.
