Stevens Pass Opens for "Government De-Rail Session"

Posted: Updated:

LEAVENWORTH, Wash. - An area mountain opens for a special one-day "Government D-Rail Session."

Stevens Pass Mountain Resort, near Seattle, saw two feet of a snow fall earlier this week. This is the earliest the resort's chairlifts have opened to the public. 

More than 400 skiers and snowboarders hit the slopes on Saturday with clear skies and temperatures in the 60's. Six snow park features were set up. 

Stevens Pass usually opens in late November for the season.
