Snow continues to pile up in the Cascades, and The Summit at Snoqualmie will begin winter operations this weekend.

Summit West, which will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, received 14 inches of snow overnight and has a base of 31 inches. Lift-tickets are $50 for adults and $30 for youth and seniors.

"Snow conditions are great at Summit West, and the immediate forecast shows more is expected to fall," said Guy Lawrence, The Summit at Snoqualmie director of marketing.

"After this storm we'll be a lot closer to opening more areas, and Summit Central is the next one we plan to open. We're looking really good as far as conditions at Alpental, but have not made a determination there yet."

A winter storm warning remained in effect through Friday for the Cascades with an additional 8 to 14 inches of snow on top of the 24 inches that has fallen in the past two days.

Other Washington areas open are Crystal Mountain, Stevens Pass, Mission Ridge, White Pass, Mount Baker, 49 Degrees North, and Mount Spokane Ski and Snowboard Park. Ski Bluewood could open by next weekend.
