Heather Ridge is the mountain directly across US 2 from the Stevens Pass ski area. It is unmarked on Green Trails maps. Heather Ridge is sometimes called Skyline Ridge, perhaps after Skyline Lake, a small body of water near the summit. This short tour is a pleasant alternative to riding the lifts at the Stevens Pass ski area. Ski runs range in difficulty from intermediate to advanced, with slopes facing every point of the compass. This tour offers at least three possibilities, each with a distinct character. Difficulties: Moderate avalanche potential; parking (get an early start).
