SNOQUALIMIE SUMMIT, Wash. -- Snoqualmie Summit Marketing Director Guy Lawrence was afraid they weren’t going to get it.

“I thought maybe we missed that big spring snowstorm, but by the looks of it, it’s here,” said Lawrence, as he squinted in the sun while snow came down in big flakes.

That combination of sun and fresh snow is exactly what managers hope for this time of year. Not only does it draw in the skiers and boarders, but it also helps them end their season on a pleasant high that will stick with them when it’s time to buy a season pass for next year.

About two feet of snow has fallen on Snoqualmie, Stevens Pass and Crystal over the last week, more at Baker and the storm still has some strength.

Some skiers at Snoqualmie Friday said they wait all season for conditions like these - good fresh snow and sunshine.
