More Info

Located just an hour east of Seattle, in the heart of the Cascade Range, Alpental is the ideal destination for a backcountry ski touring adventure.

Alpental is tucked into a valley that runs northwest from Snoqualmie Pass. The valley is bordered to the west by Denny Mountain, the Tooth, Bryant Peak, and Chair Peak. Snoqualmie Peak sits on the northeast side of the valley.

Anyone of these peaks makes for the perfect backcountry skiing destination. Here, the views are incredible and the powder is even better. While the area is widely considered a great place for first-time backcountry skiers, there are plenty of great challenges for intermediate and advanced-level off-piste skiers as well.
