STEVENS PASS — Stevens and Snoqualmie passes have been closed since Sunday evening due to heavy rain causing avalanche conditions. Several natural slides have come down on Highway 2 over Stevens Pass since the closure.

The pass was still closed as of 8:27 a.m. today between milepost 58 by Scenic and milepost 64.5 at the summit. The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) does not have an estimated time for reopening.

The avalanches have caused cleanup to take longer than usual for snow removal crews, according to WSDOT.OT.
