A down-home ski area staged in a 2,000 ac basin with sprawling intermediate and advanced terrain while garnering praise as an excellent family resort. Snow is always a bit colder and drier here than the Cascade Concrete at other Washington ski areas. It's a couple hour further than Alpental and Snoqualmie but worth the drive if you're up for it. Hit the Chair 5 Pub after a long day on the slopes and check out lodging options in nearby Wenatchee

Awesome place with great variety of terrain. Lots of hidden runs and tree shots. Short hike to off piste areas that's always have great snow. Little to no lines besides the initial line in the morning.... More

A big, powdery mountain ridge high on the "dry" side of the Cascade Range for all types of skiers, with uncrowded slopes and lots on snow way into spring. It was my last stop on a grand Northwest tour in May, 2017. Grand view of the Columbia River desert way below; awesome rock cliffs; inexpensive lodging and restaurants near Wenatchee in... More

Great little resort with a surprisingly large amount of varied terrain. Being on the east side of the Cascades, powder quality here is great as well, none of the typical West Coast slush you might be used to.
