Thanks to the hardwork of WSDOT crews, the North Cascades Highway 20 is scheduled to open at noon on May 10 (today!). Crews started clearing the 34-mile stretch of closed highway on March 26 with their sites set on opening by the first week of May. Although they didn’t quite meet their goal, we are psyched to see the road opening tomorrow. Thanks to a March and April flush with storms, the snowpack is sure to serve up excellent spring skiing for many weeks to come.
For those in the know, Highway 20 allows some of the most extensive and varied roadside attraction skiing in the the lower 48. From the classic chutes and lines out of Hairpin Valley and Washington Pass to extended tours from Rainy Pass, the North Cascades have it all.
