Passes have been closing and reopening Friday and Saturday as snowfall and spin outs block the roadways and have to be cleared.

Tips from Washington state DOT

With more snow in the forecast, remember to plan for winter weather, especially if you’re crossing the mountains. Even in the lowlands, we can get snow, so take tire chains, warm clothes, blankets, water, food, and things to keep the kids entertained. 

Make sure you have all the winter essentials if you’re traveling over one of our mountain passes. It’s also a good idea to make sure that you have an emergency kit in your vehicle in case you encounter winter weather or an emergency road closure.

Travelers can find real-time mountain pass reports by downloading WSDOT's free smartphone app, tuning into the Highway Advisory Radio at 1610 AM and 530 AM or by calling 5-1-1.

Be sure to follow WSDOT Twitter accounts that cover the passes (@SnoqualmiePass, @WSDOT_East and @WSDOT_Passes
