Ski Season At Lake Wenatchee This is how much snow we SHOULD have at Lake Wenatchee

Hello skiers . . .


I feel I should touch bases with you all so you know we're still here and ready to begin grooming trails.  We're more than ready.  Ready and waiting . . .  



No snow currently, no accumulations forecast through next week.  What a bummer.  Here are a couple links on the subject:  


Current conditions in the park:


Short term forecast, specific to this spot:


We will be starting from scratch when (if) the snow comes, right in the heart of the (normal) season.  Be patient - we usually spend a couple or several days establishing a base for our trails during early season snows.  We need a nice dense foot of snow to groom well, and this is after we've been scraping, leveling, and filling the base for a while.  We'll do everything we can to provide good skiing opportunities with whatever snow we have even while building a base.


In other news:

Dog Trial:  In response to growing requests, we are going to allow dogs on the Chiwawa See & Ski trail this winter, after 3 p.m.  We've been in touch with other Nordic areas that have allowed dogs in some capacity and they all report remarkably positive experiences and few conflicts.  Check out the attached posters for more information.  A comment box will be maintained at the trailhead throughout the winter for your feedback.

Guided Snowshoe Hike:  El Sendero, a local organization dedicated to human-powered backcountry fun will be offering a guided snowshoe trip in our North Park on January 1.  This is part of a statewide effort to get folks outside in our state parks on New Years Day.    Please call the park if you are interested - (509) 763-3101.

Volunteers!   Volunteers continue to provide us with much needed labor and expertise (nearly 100 hours this winter).  Our North and South Snowshoe trails have been re-established after the carnage of last winter's storm thanks to Lloyd and Kathy Brodniak and Bob and Jerry Jennings.  Bill Miller continues to spearhead volunteer efforts in wrangling brush on Nason Ridge.  He and a bunch of folks from Kahler Glen also created a new route for our snowcat that will allow for a much more reasonable and moderate climb up the last bit from the golf course to the start of the Lower Nason trail.


That's it for now.  If any of you have any questions or suggestions, please respond to us here at [email protected]

As “west siders” looking for a getaway near Leavenworth, Geordie provided insight … his knowledge of design features important in a “snowy winter wonderland” was appreciated. Thanks Geordie!

Geordie made this somewhat complicated transition easier for us…going above and beyond to help us work through issues that came up during the sale of our parents home. We appreciated his knowledge, attentiveness to details and his willing spirit.
Our family is grateful for Geordie!

Geordie was great in every way. We have been looking in the Leavenworth area for some time, and Geordie was absolutely the best for local knowledge, history and depth on neighborhoods, developments and the local market trends. He was very quick to respond (even when he was on his vacation) and worked very diligently to get all of our questions answered in a very timely fashion. We would recommend him highly to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Very friendly, and helped us navigate all of the local options before we made an offer on the property that we purchased. Thank you, Geordie!

It was such a pleasure to work with Geordie and his wife, Allyson on our cabin purchase. They showed us a variety of locations, listened to what we wanted and helped us find the perfect match. Everything was smooth and not stressful, just relaxed and easy. We would definitely recommend Geordie and use him again if the need arises!

Moving to Leavenworth?

Are you looking for a cabin or a condo in Leavenworth that your family can use as a home base when climbing, skiing or hiking around Leavenworth or Lake Wenatchee?

Maybe you rent a house here and have decided to stay, surprised how a summer of rafting somehow turned into seven years.

Maybe it’s time to escape the hustle of the big city (and its rain) and move to Leavenworth with its four seasons.

Maybe you bought a condo years ago, don’t seem to use as much, and it’s time to sell.

Whatever your motivation, we are here to help. If you are buying a home, the best place to start is with our Homebuyer’s Guide to Leavenworth.
