With partly sunny skies in the Saturday forecast, White Pass Ski Area is joining the crowd of Northwest ski slopes open this weekend.

Spotlight on snow sports

The resort, on U.S. Highway 12 southeast of Mount Rainier National Park, announced Friday morning that it will be open Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 18 and 19, running both its surface lifts, and chairlifts including Great White, Far East, Chair 4 and the Basin Quad.  More snow is needed before the Couloir Express will open.

The ski hill will close Monday through Wednesday, then reopen on Thanksgiving Day for daily operation.
