Turns All Year


    Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with deep winter snows and long cool springs which help preserve the mountain snowpack, making possible year-round skiing. Summer skiing in the Cascades can provide some of the nicest backcountry conditions of the year: a fast, consolidated, and consistent snowpack; warm, sunny weather; and long hours of daylight. The major Cascade volcanoes (Mt. Rainier, Mt. Baker, Mt. Adams, and Mt. Hood) have on their flanks extensive backcountry skiing, snowboarding, and ski touring terrain, which becomes accessible as spring progresses into summer. Long skiing runs are available even into September, at which time new snow typically begins to accumulate on higher elevation snow fields. Thus, year-round skiing in the Pacific Northwest is not only possible, but enjoyable.
