Spring-Skiing-on-Mount-Baker-Near-Seattle

It’s not too late to catch in on some of the best ski slopes near Seattle!

As winter gives way to spring, some of our favorite spots to ski, like Mt. Baker, Crystal Mountain, and Stevens Pass, are remaining open for much of April.

We love them for their higher-than-average annual snowfall, their awesome views, and their high-quality powder. Happy to see you, Spring! Now let’s shred.

Mt. Baker – Closing 4/22

Mt. Baker recently topped North American lists for snowfall this season, and was just named a top resort for Spring Skiing by Snowpak.com—a popular resource for winter sport junkies. If you’re looking for tons of snow, awesome steeps, and backcountry accessibility, Mt. Baker is not to be missed. Mt. Baker: Mt. Baker Highway; 360-734-6771

Crystal Mountain – Closing 4/22

The largest ski resort in Washington, Crystal Mountain offers a wide variety of terrain options, from groomers and steeps to bowls, chutes and wide open backcountry.
