The Summit at Snoqualmie

Snoqualmie Pass, Washington

Is your adrenaline pumping yet? Standing on the edge of this remote cliff, poised for a fast vertical descent through thick powder and snow-laden pines, the extreme skier is king or queen of this vast wintery world. The backcountry of the Alpental ski area, 50 miles east of Seattle in the Washington Cascades, is legendary for both its beauty and peril. Don’t underestimate Alpental, they say -- only the most experienced skiers dare brave its wild unknown.
