    I recognized the post was about Stevens Pass despite the misspelling, because it’s nearby, the closest Cascade pass for those of us living just north of Seattle.

    http://www.or.nrcs.usda.gov/snow/maps/sitepages/21b01s.html then click on Comparison Plot. As of Dec. 9, snow water equivalent looks about 50% ahead of usual, but within the historical recorded range shown on the SWE plot.

    Most of the snow accumulation at Stevens happens in December and January. To get to ice-age-like glacier build up in the area, somehow February and later would have to get more precipitation or the melt season would have to get shorter.

      Oops. The spelling has now been corrected.

      Park Rangers have gone on record as saying that MANY glaciers ARE growing and have been for the past few years. So obviously there is more snow later and the warm seasons ARE getting shorter.
