The White Pass Ski Area will open Saturday, and becomes the fourth Cascade destination area to open for winter operations.

“We picked up six inches of snow (through Wednesday), which gives us the confidence to open Great White Express,” said Kathleen Goyette, the White Pass Ski Area marketing director. “We will be adding lifts if we get more snow, and at this point we plan on operating daily (from 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.) conditions permitting.”

The White Pass Ski Area has a base of 16 inches and 33 inches on the summit.

Another series of weather systems are expected to bring light to moderate snowfall mainly to the northern Cascades in the days ahead.
