Probly a tie between crystal and baker. both are about the same distance from seattle and both have epic BC.
For inbounds skiing, it's going to have to be Crystal Mountain. It has over 2000 acres inbounds, is closer than Baker (good stuff is outside the lines (sorta)) and gets pretty good quality snow. Baker is farther away, but it gets butt loads of snow. It hold the world record for recorded snowfall in one year! And as I said above, the really good goods are outside of the boundaries...
Stevens is nice, but just hasn't clicked for me like Crystal and Baker have. And if you care, I ski Alpental at the Summit at Snouqalmie, about an hour from Seattle. Good terrain there, if you get the avy gear...
BUY AVY GEAR!!!! It's worth it in Washington.
Haha! Not quite. It's teeny-tiny.
I'm not sure they even have a chair lift, only rope tows...
White pass! There are no gapers or crowds and some really sick lines and cliffs if u know were to go. Last year they also had a pretty dope park.
my geography is terrible but how about uhmmm, WHISTLER.
Whistler is sick and not too far from Seattle especially for a 6-10 day trip.
You've got that right. lol
it really depends on what your looking for. but if your going for 6-10 days i recomend you go all over. stevens, alpy/snoqualmie and crysta are the closest and biggest. they are all fun and different.
Snoqualmie/Alpy has super fun steep rugged terrain (alpy) and a decent park with fun rails and mediocre to bad jumps depending on the day. hour away.
Stevens has lots of good tree skiing and super nice jumps in their park 1 hr 45 ish
crystal is the biggest and has lots of big open bowls no park though 2 hours ish
baker has dope terrain cheap lift tickets and not many people but its 2 and half hours + depending on snow.
as far as powder inbounds baker or crystal are you best bet in my opinion. but they are all good
if you are willing to drive farther you can go to white or mission.
