Just moved to Seattle from Colorado
What pass should I get? Want to ski Park and Pow.
Bow to your corporate overlords and get an epic pass
breakdown below. I go for snoqualmie/alpental because it is the closest to me i'd rather go 3-4 nights a week than 1-2. Also if you haven't skiied in the PNW before you should know that our pow is very different than Colorado pow, it's heavy.
Stevens = 1.5 hours good pow and they have a good park. However, there night skiing is a bit lacking and doesn't include the park.
Snoqualmie = 1 hour, lower elevation but easy to get to and always has parking. Also the park is open at night. Alpental (same pass) has some good terrain as well as back country access.
Crystal mountain = 2 hours best pow & big terrain. They don't have any big jumps though. just rails and boxes.
Snoqualmie / Alpental is the best choice if you want to maximize your number of ski days. The park is arguably better than Stevens
All times are Eastern (-4)
