The rolling hills immediately east of Blewett Pass offer a variety of short ski tours that are accessible throughout the winter due to their proximity to a major highway. Although this region of the Cascades usually has a shallower snowpack than areas farther west do, the quality of the snow typically makes up for it. Relatedly, this area routinely has better weather than other parts of the Cascades and can offer much sunnier skiing if you need to dry out midwinter. With well-marked trails and a short approach, this area is a great venue for both new backcountry travelers and seasoned locals seeking a workout or dawn patrol spot.
