Photos from Sunday Nov. 27 – a beautiful day on the mountain, with fresh snow!

Conditions on the mountain have been great with the 18" of fresh snow we received on Sunday night!

We will continue to see calm winds today as we are protected by high mountains to the north and northeast, however temperatures are supposed to be in the mid-teens or lower so dress accordingly.

Looking ahead to the next few days, forecasts are calling for continued cool temps with significant snowfall starting Tuesday afternoon right on through Wednesday!  Looks like a classic PNW snow maker is coming our way and we could even see some snow down in the flatlands!

While you're warming up at the fireplace inside of the Raven Hut try one of our new Baker Bowls! We've got Sweet & Smoky Brisket, Southwest Chicken and our vegan option the Marinated Miso Tofu. More flavors and specials are coming soon.

The Heather Meadows and Raven Hut lodges will be open today and we are looking to shift down to White Salmon on Wednesday. Make your plans to come on up this week for some uncrowded conditions and some really great snow!
