WINTER SPORTS -- Today's snow storm is doing its magic at area ski resorts.

"Powder Wednesday was epic at Lookout Pass today," reports Bill Jennings from Lookout Pass Ski Area. "Early this morning we had 22 inches at the base and at least 30 inches at the summit. It’s been snowing all day.

"According to the National Weather Service, we are expecting another 2 feet of snow through Friday!

Mount Spokane reported 5 inches of new powder fell between the 9 a.m. opening and 1:40 p.m. -- and it was still snowing.

49 Degrees North reported the storm has dumped about 6 inches today.

Silver Mountain says it's received 8 inches in the last 24 hours.

All the resorts should be getting much more.
