How to Read Our Snow Data Above
Snowfall amounts for 12hr (overnight), 24hr, and 48hr timeframes are based on measurements taken at 5am daily. 24hr and 48hr snow totals are cumulative, so whatever fell in the last 24 is built into the 48. Between 5pm and 5am our weather data is automatically updated based on telemetry data from Northwest Weather and Avalanche Center and represents our overnight totals. The "Since 5am" snowfall amount is based on manual measurements taken periodically throughout the day.

May 6, 2018: Last day of the season! It's been a heck of a ride, thanks for sticking with us through the whole thing! Forecasts for today are saying cloudy with a chance of showers. Nothing we can't handle. The spring snow has been super fun lately and we're thankful for one more day on the hill. Come up to Alpental and get your last turns of the season! You just might miss them when they're gone. We still have ticket specials. Looking forward to seeing everyone up here for the final send-off!
Nash Gate Notice: The Nash Gate is now open. Do not enter the Back Bowls without a buddy and do not enter Elevator Gate. Elevator Gate will remain closed this weekend. If you choose to access the Back Bowls via Nash Gate, please be very cautious, watch for holes and snow boulders and do not ski Elevator or the surrounding "near" Back Bowls area (Elevator, Gun Barrel, Rock Face, Roxoff, Brownie Bowl, etc). Please avoid the Knoll 4 area as well. Significant climax hazard exists in many of those areas. Please maintain visual contact with your partner(s) at all times and watch for snow boulder movement as well as snow releasing from on or near rock faces. If you're not familiar with the areas listed above, please do not enter the Back Bowls or stop in and ask for guidance from Alpental Pro Patrol at the top of Chair 2. We are dealing with rotten snow and a very interesting snowpack and Pro Patrol is working hard to open and keep open as much terrain as possible. You're caution, respect of closures, and understanding will greatly help. Thank you!
Cascade Traverse Notice: Cascade Traverse is closed due to falling avalanche debris. Meister, Eisfallen, and Dom are closed as well.
All restrictions for LTD and X-Passes have been lifted. Holders of these passes can now ski anytime we're open at Alpental for the rest of the season! Enjoy!
