“ Mt. Baker is the home of some serious skiers and boarders. This is an area with limited blue and green terrain. Ski or board, it doesn't matter, the locals tend toward the hard core side of things. There is a HUGE amount of incredible BC, but come prepared, this is avalanche country. When you come to visit for the first time don't go off the main runs without a...” --Posaune
“ This year Mission scored some good snow and good conditions (so far ). It is first time in the last 5 years that the full mountain is open before Christmas, including bomber bowl and microwave tower. People have been skiing powder almost every other day since opening. If you are in the neighborhood, Mission could be a pleasant stop. ” --Artemat
“Been skiing this hill pretty hard for 3 years, don't think any 2 days have ever been the same. An amazing number of bowls to to choose from if you want to hike a bit you can double it. And yes there is snow in them, lots of snow. The weather and visibility can truly suck sometimes but there are lots of trees to help out with that. There are so many different major bowls that you ski many...” --Stranger
“ If you can ski on weekdays during mid-winter, then Stevens Pass is a great place to go. Weekends From Christmas through February are a zoo with wall to wall people and traffic. Before Christmas and after March 1 the crowds disappear. There is plenty of great terrain for all levels of skier from beginner to expert. The grooming is very good on the blue trails. ...” --Posaune
“ White Pass is a dream for beginners and intermediates. It's an awesome place to learn to ski powder, and a great place to ski with kids. Most of the slopes are gentle grades and wide open. There is lots of snow, on average, and relatively few skiers/riders, so the goods are easy to find. There are some condos for rent at the base, but not a lot of options for lodging,...” --SRECK
“ Yes, at first glance Summit West/Central/East may look like your typical mid-atlantic ski hill, but go up and explore a bit and you'll be surprised what you find. And Alpental is nothing like your typical mid-atlantic ski hill. If you live in Seattle, this is a great place to go. If you are visiting the area, it's worth the day trip(s). If you're choosing between...” --Rolfe Schmidt
“ Mt Spokane is definitely not a destination ski area. Having said that, the mountain does excel at catering to local skiers and snowboarders, and is worth a visit if you are in the Spokane area during a storm cycle. It's easy to get to, just 30 minutes from town. I have fond memories of night skiing with school friends as I grew up, being the only area in the Inland NW that actually...” --spknmike
“I've skied Chewelah Peak/49 Degrees North many times, and on my most recent visit had a very enjoyable time skiing a terrific variety of runs including an area with some of the best gladed tree skiing I've ever enjoyed. The age range of skiers was from toddlers to senior citizens, many wore jeans and sweatshirts, Carharrts, and ballcaps, there was an outdoor barbecue and an indoor grill with a...” --nolo
