(STEVENS PASS, WA -- For skiers and snowboarders it is always better late than never. The Stevens Pass Ski Resort opened for the season yesterday to several thousand eager skiers and boarders, many of who have been anticipating this day for weeks.
In normal years Stevens Pass opens sometime around Thanksgiving in November. In fact in the past twenty-two years all of 15 of the season openers have come in the month of November.
For opening day skiers were greeted to about 45 inches of snow at the base and around 49 at the top of the resort. Yesterday in a 24-hour period Stevens Pass received a substantial snowfall of around twenty-three inches.
