Pacific Northwest Activities
Snow Skiing

The Pacific Northwest, simply put, is all about mountains. And mountains are about skiing.

From the northern reaches of the Rocky Mountains in British Columbia and Montana to the equally spectacular Oregon Cascades and Washington Cascades, the Northwest's mountain ranges dominate just about every visual panorama. They dominate just about every sport, as well. Whether its traversing by cross-country skis the section of Yellowstone National Park in Idaho, trekking the woods outside of Bend, Oregon, parasailing off Whistler Mountain in British Columbia or climbing formidable Mt. Rainier in Washington, life in the Northwest is molded by geography.

With more than 100 established ski areas in this five state and province region, the Northwest has the largest and most diverse concentration of ski resorts in North America. Outdoor enthusiasts can snowboard the slopes of Oregon's Hoodoo Mountain, tube the bowl at any number of B.C.'s winter recreation areas, or night ski the Rockies of Montana. Of course, for those who like their winter vistas a bit more remote and pristine, there's also trout fishing in Montana and backcountry camping in Idaho to round out the winter experience.

The five regional downhill ski maps we've put together provide an overview of some of the Northwest's best winter recreation spots. Not included on these maps are those out of the way gems and that indescribable beauty that make the Northwest what it is, and worth each individual discovery.
