But, if you’re looking for the true winter activities that require some warm-weather gear and a little bit of snow, you’re in luck.

At an elevation of 5,000 ft., this beautiful recreation area gets an astounding average of 400 inches of snow each year. Located in the Olympic National Park, Hurricane Ridge offers more than stunning views. Here, you’ll find alpine skiing and snowboarding, as well as cross country skiing and snowshoeing trails.
