SEATTLE - After a roaring start to the ski season, the mountains went through an early winter hiccup where warm temperatures limited new snow.

But the mountains did get a decent amount of snow last week, and are back to healthy levels. Most of the ski resorts are reporting snow depths at or slightly above normal for this time of year.

Snoqualmie Summit and Stevens Pass are running about 10 percent above normal with 85 and 96 inches, respectively. As usual, Mount Baker leads the way with 145 inches of snow -- 17 percent above the normal of 124 inches. Crystal Mountain is doing the best as far as being ahead of normal with a 78-inch snow pack that is 34 percent above normal.
