It is amazing that about an hour out of Seattle on I 90 at the end of February is a great little park for sledding, snow angles, snow forts, snow balls, snow caves, and cross country skiing. The rangers grade out a 3 lane sledding track perfect for little kids to spend hours sledding down and walking up. Great time.

We went up to see some snow and enjoy the sledding hill. It was early in the season so there weren't too many people there, but with about 6 inches of snow, there was enough for slippery fun sliding down the hill. The snow was sticky and we were able to build a snowman on one side at the top of the hill. There are restrooms in the parking lot and there are other amenities at the nearby ski area. Be aware that a Discover Pass and Sno-park permit are needed to use the area.

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.
