This is a beloved local spot for many especially if you grew up in the Seattle area. It was once known for being full of ski bums but these days it’s developed quite a bit. That being said, it still has some great intermediate and advanced runs that you’re sure to love. Just keep in mind that parking is pretty limited.

When: Through May 1st
Where: Summit Stevens Pass, 93001 US Hwy 2, Skykomish, WA
Cost: $73-$1024

The Summit at Snoqualmie / Alpental

This is the spot to learn to ski and board! Really, it’s what Alpental is known for. Beyond that, it’s a great place for family-friendly skiing and they have a snow tubing center as well. If that’s not enough for you it’s also home to the state’s largest night skiing area which is perfect for after-work shreds.

When: Through April 17th
Where: 1001 State Route 906, Snoqualmie Pass, WA
