We split our time between White Pass and Summit. They both have pros and cons, Crystal is full of snobs. Summit is close, White Pass is nice, lots of good snow but it is small and takes us way to long to get there.

I don't really understand the complaints about snobs. I mean you run into some here and there, but not enough (in my experience) to effect me much. Maybe it's also because my friends and I generally don't spend much time in lift lines, in the park, or on groomers. We do backcountry, sidecountry, tree runs, hikes, etc... We don't sit around...instead we bomb everywhere and rest on the lift ride or at a safety meeting...lol.

washington has some great riding, i'd definately go to Seattle U. You get over to Spokane and its a little flat and outside of Spokane there's nothing for hundreds of miles but wheat fields. Baker is amazing for BC, Stevens is awesome all around (idk what that one dude was talking about saying they don't have a park, its sick), SnoCompton is not one of my favorites, but its popular with the younger crowd, Crystal is way overpriced IMO, and White Pass.... drive the extra 15 minutes to Hood is all i gotta say about that.

I just checked the rates, for my whole family we are talking $2,246 bucks for a season pass! $886 is what we paid at snocompton. It is not my favorite place to go but its cheap

There are Tons of great places to go in the PCNW I am from Canada and I love Baker its my favourite mountain to ride if you have the chance to go there do. They get so much powder its great.. I understand what some people say about the attitude I find there are some cocks riding around but that's true everywhere especially at larger resorts. One thing that is different between the coastal mountains is the amount of snow and the water content. Its not campaign powder like you would find in Colorado or in the Canadian Rockies or even the Canadian interior for that matter but there are still lots of great powder days. You just have to watch the weather and pay attention to the temperature in the area your planning on going. If you know its a hovering around 30degrees when it snows you know its going to heavy and really wet. I have ridden the campaign powder and it is unreal but you have to think of the amount of powder those interior mountains get.. its way less which = less powder days. At a place like Baker or whistler they get a lot of snow. I personally think whistler is overrated, too busy and too expensive. Baker is worth the drive

Ive been loving snoqualmie the past 2 seasons. Great park and some really nice runs to IMO. Alpental is pretty badass for backcountry but other than that it only has a few runs. Trying out mt.hood this summer too, hopefully it will be open.
