Explore Skiing in Seattle
For winter sports enthusiasts, the Seattle area is heaven. From the Olympics to the west, Mt. Rainier to the south, the Cascades to the west and Mt. Baker to the North, there is no limit to skiing opportunities from a one- to three-hour drive away. Alpine (downhill) skiers should head to popular and challenging resorts at Stevens Pass, Mt. Baker and Crystal Mountain. Nordic (cross-country) skiers will enjoy Hurricane Ridge in Olympic National Park, the Methow Valley and Echo Ridge, among many other snowy destinations.
