We picked up some additional new snow overnight and it’s still snowing!  For most of the storm over the weekend the freezing level was around mid-mountain and we picked up over a foot of new snow at the higher elevations.  Green Valley filled in with a thick layer of snow and coverage is on upper mountain.  We will open the Mt. Rainier Gondola and Green Valley Express lift today, December 22.  We plan to add the Chinook Express, Forest Queen Express and Rainier Express lifts on Tuesday and patrol will evaluate Chair 6 for a possible opening on Wednesday.  Unfortunately there isn’t enough snow near the base to open Discovery or the new Quicksilver chair, which means beginners should wait until we get more snow.  We’re expecting snow showers over the next few days and will get as much of the mountain open as we can throughout the week.  Hallelujah… It’s a Christmas Miracle!  More Information & Updates
