Ski Report - Stevens Pass, Lake Wenatchee, Leavenworth

Winter is here, Christmas is around the corner, and everyone wants to know... Is it ski season yet in Leavenworth?

It depends on who you ask.

Here is the round up of local ski areas from West to East.

Stevens Pass Ski Area

Stevens Pass opened the lifts on Thursday December 18th for the 2008-9 season. You can get current conditions and webcams at

Allyson and I have seasons passes at Stevens so if you see a hotdog skier dragging some long legged bumbly on telemark skis through the bumps, come say hi.

Stevens Pass Nordic Ski Center

Stevens Pass Nordic Center is opening their trails on Saturday December 20. They have 30" as of this morning and more on the way. Generally they are open Thursday-Sunday, but all week through the holidays.





Lake Wenatchee State Park (and Kahler Glen)

I got an email from the park on Friday afternoon.

The snow is falling and it's time to start thinking about winter recreation. As of today, Lake Wenatchee has received 22" of very dry snow, which has settled down to the current depth of approximately 12". The snow is too thin and dry for machine grooming at this time. We did try some limited "track packing" in the North Park today, but were occasionally catching roots and rocks (potentially damaging to the equipment) and found that the dry snow will not pack sufficiently. Until we receive more snow (forecasted for late Sunday), users can ski, snowshoe, and sled on all ungroomed surfaces. 

The park is accessible, with plowed roads and open restroom facilities. Sno Park Permits will be required beginning this Saturday, December 20th.

Leavenworth Mountain Sports Club (Leavenworth Ski Hill, Fish Hatchery, et al)

The club's Icicle River Trails  opened today with the Ski Hill opening tomorrow. The golf course still needs more snow. You can check their website for the most recent info on local ski conditions.

Mission Ridge

Mission Ridge ski area had a limited opening last weekend.  They made quite a bit of man made snow and certainly this weekend's storm should help them open some more trails.

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!
