    Nice job on getting out for some early season! I'm starting Thursday night making snow at Loon Mountain in NH, my local mountain. We sure need it out here, we've barely had 2 inches of natural so far this season!

    One of these days, I need to get up there. Have not skied in 20 years though so it could be very interesting

    Nice report!

    Night skiing at Stevens Pass! (1/20/13)

    Trail map from Skimap.org:
    Posted Image

    ----
    Stevens Pass is a ski area located at the heart of one of Washington's Cascade mountain passes. Stevens is 1,125 acres which is only 125 acres more than my home mountain, Mt. Baker. The ski resort doesn't get a ton of snow, but they still get an impressive average of 450 inches a year. There is a backside of the ski area, but it is closed at night since it isn't lighted. Most of the blue runs are lit and all of the green runs are lit. None of the black diamond runs are lit though. 6 out of 10 lifts are open for night skiing including the resort's two high-spreed quad lifts; Hogsback Express and Skyline Express. Other lifts that are open are two doubles; Brooks and Kehr's Chair (Big Chief) and two triples: Daisy and Tye MIll. The snow conditions on the lit runs was meh as the surface was ice and there were bumps everywhere. Overall, I think Mt. Baker has more challenging green and blue runs compared to the ones at Stevens.

    I apologize for the bad picture quality. My camera doesn't take good night photos. D:

    The resort's three lodges. Tye Creek lodge on the left, Granite Peaks lodge in the middle, and Pacific Crest on the right.

    Daisy, the beginner lift. (Yes, those chairs are pink.)

    Hogsback Express's lower station. Skyline Express's station is almost identical.
