KING-TV reports ski resorts are weeks behind their usual openings.
For New Year’s Eve, crews at Alpental scooped about 15 tons of snow from its parking lots and moved it to a tubing area a few miles east.
That doesn’t help the people who want to take a ski lift up the mountain to go skiing but at least some snow lovers are having fun.
The Summit at Snoqualmie Pass is still closed for skiing and snowboarding, almost three weeks past its average open date.
Snoqualmie season pass holders can use some other resorts for free while they pray for snow at home.
