We went on the New years day holiday but arrived early, the main slope wasn't open yet but we found plenty of fun starting on the small slope just past it. Once open we all went down the big slope but the adults (kids 6 and under and not overly adventurous) had more fun here, a tiny slope also was... More

We sled for a while then took a walk along the snowshoe trail. The place was quiet and pristine. Still lots of snow for the kids to mess around for hours. There is a restroom but... More

My daughter and I went along with our skiing family members fit the day. It was a long boring trudge for $16 each. We were not allowed to use the lift to go up to higher trails. Next time we'll definitely try the free trails near marker 54 sno-park.

Once parked We had a blast. We took the trail up away from most of the people and things were just serene. Very kid friendly everyone was... More

Great little place to cross country ski or go snow shoeing. The first hill is wicked just to get to the trail. So, if on cross country skis, just take them off and walk up. The trail was serene, beautiful and so quiet. HIGHLY recommend. Anyone can snow shoe. Just get the poles when you rent the snow shoes.

My holiday was ruined. January 1st 2013 I came with my family 1st time to the snow in Washington state. That day was announced free parking for carpools with 3 or more people. However, the park employee did not let us get in, because parking lot was full. Did not explain another options on this area, even I was driving... More
