Skiing & Snow Sports

When storms blow off the Pacific Ocean, they hit the Cascade Mountains and drop their precipitous loads. That means great skiing and snowboarding can be had here December through April. Pick and choose from the handful of beautiful resorts within just a few short hours of Bellevue.

Get a powder fix within an hour's drive of downtown Bellevue at the Summit at Snoqualmie. Or visit Crystal Mountain Resort for a challenging terrain as well as a beautiful scenic ride up to the Summit House Restaurant on the Mount Rainier gondola.

If skiing isn't for you, enjoy the snow on a snowshoeing or snow tubing adventure instead! The Summit Nordic Center provides a unique escape for cross-country skiers and snowshoers of all ages and ability levels. On-site rentals, lessons and an enthusiastic staff make joining this quieter community of The Summit easier than ever.
