Jack Frost just doesn’t want to let go of winter, with more snow expected to fall mainly along the higher Cascade mountainsides.

Moderate to heavy snow — anywhere from 10 inches to more than 2 feet — is forecast through Sunday in the higher-elevation ski areas such as Mount Baker, Stevens Pass, Crystal Mountain and White Pass. The freezing level will hover between 3,000 and 6,000 feet through Monday.

That will be followed by a series of weaker systems, which promises a tad more fresh snow up high.

The ski and snowboard season is wrapping up at some resorts, but there are still plenty of places get your spring-break fix in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and British Columbia.
