A key storm hit Monday Nov. 26 and dumped snow on the mountain, with forecasts calling for up to 14 inches more by opening day. Speculation is that, with a little snow luck, both Heather Meadows and Chair 5 will open up Thursday with White Salmon ready for Friday. "Sweet," says local snowboarder Brad Smithers. "Seeing things open in British Columbia and in other areas has me and the boys ready and raring to go. Bring on Baker, baby."
