SVCA Crews have been plowing since 4:30 this morning but snowfall may exceed their efforts. Per the Snow Response Map, crews have been working on primary roads first, then responding to the secondary roads. For your safety, please avoid driving if at all possible. We are in a current NOAA winter storm warning expected to last until 7pm
We ask that you assist the plowing efforts by either staying off the roads or ensuring your cars are located in the designated overflow parking areas: Gate 5 overflow, Gate 1 Park and Ride, Community Center Lot, Lower Golf Parking lot, Lower Gate 28 Parking. Vehicles blocking plows or emergency services can have a devastating impact. If you have to abandon your car outside one of these areas, please call Security at 360-715-2449 and give them your name, contact information, make and model of your vehicle and it’s location. If your car is blocking plows or presents a hazard to other drivers, it will be towed to the lower golf parking lot.
A weather alert was issued for Monday evening into Tuesday with very low temperatures and several inches of snow predicted. All primary, secondary, and UTV routes were salt-brined last Friday. This helps to prevent icing. Over the weekend, all of the upper gates and affected roads in the lower gates were plowed and sanded as appropriate. SVCA has a crew scheduled to begin plowing late this evening and another crew scheduled to come in very early on Tuesday morning to continue the snow removal effort.
Please use caution when driving and avoid driving if possible. If road conditions prevent you from getting home, please park in the designated overflow parking areas: Gate 5 Overflow, Gate 1 Park and Ride, Community Center lot, Lower Golf parking lot, Lower Gate 28 parking. If you have to abandon your car outside one of these areas, please call Security at 360-319-8200 and give them your name, contact info, make & model of your vehicle, and its location. If your car is blocking plows or presents a hazard to other drivers, it will be towed to the lower golf parking lot.
Updates on snow removal and road conditions will be posted to this website in the announcements.
If you have an emergency, call 911. If you need to report road conditions or an abandoned car, call Security at 360-319-8200.
