I've grown up in this area and know Stevens pretty well. I would say it is the worst mountain to ever ski. If you are a beginner, this mountain is not for you. There is nowhere to park, nowhere to eat, and nowhere to stay.
Whatever is open on a powder day you will get a pretty sweet run in.....before you have to spend the rest of your morning in line again.
If you can be bothered to get in line again, by the time you get back to the top most of the decent lines will be tracked out. You get stuck in line with a bunch of rude, and aggressive locals who'll ski right over your skis or board to get one precious chair ahead of you in the line.
Also, due to the generally mild conditions the snow usually turns to crud within a day or two of a snow fall. What is not mentioned when they are broadcasting 10 feet of new snow is that several inches of rain also accompanied the storm.
The back-country is horrible. Its never groomed and always leaves you getting stuck in the Cascade concrete. It is best to stay on groomed runs.
The groomers are not very well groomed. If you want some nice corduroy, it's best to go to Mission Ridge where you get much better quality of snow.
Wear scuba gear! You will get soaked with the amount of rain that comes to this mountain!
I had season passes this season but I wouldn't bother going back to this place. Plenty of other places with great terrain if you are prepared to hunt it out, and without the crowds, hype and aggro....and where you can actually ski powder all day.
Best idea: go to California resorts. I heard they have been getting plenty of snow!
