Snoqualmie Pass Skiing

Snoqualmie Pass, Washington

I-90 near Milepost 53

Snoqualmie Pass is a popular skiing destination in Washington, located just over 50 miles and a world away from downtown Seattle. Whereas the city gets very little snow in the winter, the Cascade Mountain passes get several feet each year, usually starting in November and continuing some years well into April.

I grew up in Iowa, so I was pretty amazed by the depth of the snow the first time I saw it here as I drove through the pass in April 2002 when I moved to Seattle. Even though I don't ski, I make a point of getting up here every winter to check out the snow and the beautiful scenery. Skiing season was winding down when I took the ski lift photos featured below one weekday afternoon.
