Next year

March 22nd, 2014

Today is that bittersweet, but mostly sweet day where we serve our last guests of the season. Thanks to everyone who made the journey to the end of the road to ski or ride with us this winter- we look forward to seeing many of you next year already.

Looking to 2015, we anticipate our 2015 season to run from January 26th to March 29th. Weekend dates are going fast, as is the yurt. Line up your powder appointment before they are all gone!

Got some if you need it

Fun pow and extended season

March 10th, 2014

The storms have finally abated and it’s time for powder and sunshine in the North Cascades. We have extended the season until March 26th. Come to Mazama and enjoy our deep snowpack.

The only scarcity around here is the lack of tracks, Jack.

Just like that

Three months of winter in 10 days.
Was someone complaining about the lack of snow this season?
It has gotten deep.

Mining the goods

Jeff strikes pay dirt at the yurt where mining for white gold lures the hopeful each season.
Maybe you need some yurt time someday.

Beautiful mountains, great conditions

February 4th, 2014

The last storm sure brought some much needed and high quality powder to the area. The 12th man needed some pow and we got it. The 12th man needed a Super Bowl win and, well, we definitely got that.


January 24th, 2014

The season is underway and we are finding good snow, that is, if you like powder, especially with sunshine. No groomers out here!

Warming up

January 8th, 2014

Happy 2014 and best winter wishes!
The heli season starts in two weeks and we are appreciative of the storms rolling in this week laden with moisture. It has been a lean start to this winter. This significant upcoming cycle will make a big difference.
Nonetheless, even in the leaner years we have been able to find good snow and fun slopes to enjoy in this magnificent mountain range.
Operation preparation is well under way, including stoking the first yurt fire of the year.
We are pretty much booked for this season due to our user day cap. We are taking reservations for the 2015 season which will run from the end of January to the end of March.
Here’s to a festive, productive and safe winter!

No brrr here!

Snow in the mountains

November 6th, 2013

The storms are lining up off the Pacific coast and have already coated the mountains a few times. We’ll let you know when the North Cascades Highway closes – another annual sign of winter at the doorstep.

Building of stoke

October 7th, 2013

Can you feel it? Winter on the door step.
Things are falling into place for 2014… AStar, Irish pilot, Jet A fuel, new K2 powder boards with Marker bindings, Dakine packs, BCA beacons shovels and probes, quality guide gear from Helly Hansen and Smith Optics, experienced crew, good old Methow Valley and the stunning North Cascades…
Hope you will be part of our season!
