Who’s ready to hit the slopes? The latest news is reporting Oregon is in for a big winter storm, which is currently hitting the coastal mountains before it moves further inland.
Yesterday morning, across western Oregon and parts of Washington, snow was already blanketing mountain passes. The precipitation is the result of a low-pressure system that is sweeping across the Pacific Northwest over the course of the next two days.
- Timberline forecasted to see between 20-30″ of new snow by Saturday.
- Bachelor to see slightly less precipitation with 20″ projected.
“Lower elevation rain/higher elevation snow showers will increase from west to east today as an upper level disturbance moves through the area. Precipitation will taper off through the day on Friday” – NWS Pendelton
Currently, Timberline is currently open to riders and skiers, and this storm most likely will make for the first bluebird powder day of 2017/2018 ski season in the Pacific Northwest.
