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 cleared and the kids ended up playing here for a majority of the time, after an hour or so it started to get very busy so we decided to head somewhere warmer (was 22F) but was a great day. Don't forget though that you need to pay the $20 sno-park pass and if you don't have a Discovery pass you will need a day entry for this also. AS we had 7 of us in the car this was great value.

Went here with family and visitors yesterday. The place was pretty empty. The spot is pretty convenience to I90 and about 45min from Seattle.

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 it was closed.

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.

Our first trip to the mountains was to the http://www.parks.wa.gov/winter/trails/?TrailType=nonmotorized&Region=3&Park=16

Parking was a bit of a pain but being prepared and knowing to be patient and possibly having chains makes a big difference.

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 being slow and careful of the little ones.

We can't wait to go back.

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.
