The WSU Pullman campus will cancel classes on Monday, Jan. 10 and Tuesday, Jan. 11 to allow students ample time to return to Pullman following a week of severe winter weather in the state. The Washington State Department of Transportation reports that all mountain passes connecting the west and east sides of the state are closed until at least Sunday due to snow slides, downed trees, and the threat of avalanches.

WSU Pullman facilities and operations will be open normal business hours on Monday and Tuesday, weather permitting. It is only Pullman classes that are cancelled at this time.

All other WSU campuses are expected to begin classes on time Monday morning, weather permitting.

If you are planning to travel over mountain passes in the coming days, please remember to:

  • Monitor weather, road, and pass conditions closely,
  • Make sure your vehicle is ready for winter driving,
  • Pack food, water, and warm clothing,
  • Leave early, drive slowly, and allow plenty of extra time to arrive at your destination.
