Crystal joins Lookout in ski opener

SKIING  — Lookout Pass isn’t the only ski area with enough snow to open the season this weekend.Crystal Mountain resort near Mount Rainier opened today, but running just two chair lifts.

Mount Baker will have seven lifts in operation starting Saturday, the Seattle Times reports. Ski areas at Snoqualmie, Stevens and White passes still need more snow, as to our Inland Northwest resorts at 49 Degrees, Silver Mountain and Mount Spokane.

Cold and snowy weather is forecast into the weekend for the Cascades, with a foot or more of new snow predicted in some places.
