WINTERSPORTS -- Skiers and snowshowers shouldn't get too excited, but Eastern Washington hunters at least ought to be thrilled to see moisture in the form of snow on Highway 20 at Sherman Pass this morning.

At elevation 5,575 feet, Sherman Pass is the highest pass in Washington that's plowed through winter. It has a Sno-Park lot maintained  for year-round recreation access to the Kettle River Range crest.
