When I first read on the homepage that the Superunkown finals were going to be at the Summit at Snoqualmie, I honestly thought it might be a joke.
Nothing but love for Snoqualmie, but for those of you who aren't familiar, It didn't open until January this year if I'm not mistaken, and Its potentially the lowest elevation ski area in all of Washington. This comes with very unpredictable and shaky weather, for example: the Red Bull Third Shift competition from a few seasons back.. Due to a freak dump on the day of the competition, none of the riders were able to hit the big air jump they had prepared, and were forced to switch the entire competition to rail jam format.
I feel like the decision by Level 1 to hold their finals there, even in May, is questionable. Far more questionable than a place like Sun Valley. I imagine all ski areas are susceptible to rain after the season is over, however Snoqualmie, even WA, is definitely up there.
