    Great location. Powdery, untouched snow. Good group of people. Couldn't ask for a better way to spend a Saturday!

    Namhee are you allowing dogs on this ski. If so I might bring my well behaved husky and then I would drive up there and would have room for two.

      Christy do you happen to have a snow park permit. I don't have a printer so not able to get a daily online. If you don't that will be ok I know there are places to park along the highway near the campground where you don't need a permit.

    I can drive from Eastgate P&R. I have space for 3 more people in my car.

    Looks like only 8 people are signed on here -- is that the limit for these trips and after that number has been set a waiting list is started? Seems like a rather small group for skiing outdoors. Just checking - thanks. Martha

    This sno-park does allow dogs. Sounds like a plan to have you drive separately with doggie.

    I've increased to 8 people, as we have a second driver (thanks Edie)!

    If we ski all the way up to Blewett pass, we'll be going from 3120ft to 4100ft (approximately 1000 elevation gain)

    I am an intermediate skier at best. I do have x country skis. How difficult is this. How much climbing will there be?
