The Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest has 119 miles of designated cross-country skiing and snowshoeing trails to offer. The Stevens Pass Nordic Center also has trails designed explicitly for snowshoeing. See Mt. Baker-Snoqualmie National Forest and Stevens Pass Nordic Center for details and maps. 

If you are the adventurous, outdoorsy type, you can’t go wrong with just heading east on HWY 2, driving until you hit winter snows. There are many places to explore in the snowy Cascades. Just be sure to check for avalanche warnings beforehand or call the local ranger’s station.
