favorite ski hill
Crystal Mountain is our go-to spot for resort skiing. Even with a baby, it's where we spend most of our free time during the winter!
first Washington summit
Found this peak on a 2-night at Peggy's Pond below it. After a freak snowstorm turned back a mid-August summit attempt, we headed back for another (much warmer) attempt the next week.
This hike turns from a sidewalk into a brutal uphill and crescendos in several quasi-scrambles before it opens into one of the most majestic cirques in Washington state.
We took a big group and hit the trail to this tiny, beautiful lake on the West side of Stevens Pass for an overnight in July.
It's beautifully simple to get into the backcountry on your skins out of Paradise at the base of Mount Rainier, and we caught some of the best conditions you could hope for.read the post »
