Stevens Pass. This very snowy ski area (with avalanche danger and periodic closures in winter) averages 450 inches of snow annually and ranges in elevation from 3,800 feet to 5,800 feet. There are 10 chairlifts serving some 37 runs, about 90% of which are intermediate or advanced. It's popular and has limited parking, so arrive early or risk being turned away.
