Grew up on the east coast with east coast ice. Coming here was a joy but too bad they're nearly 100" behind on annual snowfall so far in 2013. At the top of 7th Heaven was a treat (away from the rental skiers and cattle stockade style lift lines. There were no lifties directing traffic so it was a free-for-all getting to the lift, that was a con since there were an ABUNDANT number of extreme beginners that couldn't speak nor understand the English language. When you got away from the base skiing was smooth and steep! Wish there was more snow but that will come when lame 2013 exits. Definitely worth the drive up from Seattle and I'll be doing it quite a few more times.
