The idea to highlight the best of Washington skiing and snowboarding was spawned before the start of last winter. Outdoors writer Craig Hill thought it would be a great way to get the inside track on the state’s ski industry.
Undaunted by the lack of snow, we still searched high and low for the best and worst when it comes to sliding down the hills of the Evergreen State.
On top of our own field research, we asked local experts and polled our readers to see what they like best. The result is our first Snow Ride Guide.
