Default Need Northern Cascades Help? (Location)

Long story short we are traveling to the Marblemount, WA area in the next several weeks. Best as I can tell it's Highway 20 out to literally the middle of nowhere.

That said does anyone from this area know of the closest resort that would be within a few hours drive in any direction?

Thanks-

Ha! I've lived in WA my whole life and never heard of Marblemount. I don't know where it is so I can't tell you how close these places are, but Baker (mentioned above) is a great place for boarding. Tons of snow.

If you are looking for a Resort, Whistler isn't too far from Baker, but I don't know the logistics of getting there from Marblemount.

Nevermind, I just google mapped it...Baker is your spot if you don't want to drive a lot. If you are willing to drive a few hours and stay a day or two, Whistler is a really fun place with two pretty good mountains.
