Get up, grab the keys, and head out the door. In the early morning winter daylight, you make your way; silent towns lay sleeping as you travel deep into the heart of Washington’s Cascades.
As you climb, the rain on your windshield changes; the pattering beats soon replaced by the familiar crunch of freshly fallen snow.
Before you know it, you’re on the mountain; fresh cold air clings to your lungs and invigorates your senses. This is why you’re here. Thoughts of work, traffic, and everyday responsibilities seem miniscule compared to the immensity of the surrounding mountains; they are simply left behind as you drop into your first turn. Excited apprehension, fresh exhilaration, and the anticipation of adventure link together, turn-by-turn, blazing the way down the mountain.
Simply put, the day is yours; yours to explore the mountain, to spend with friends, to gain new skills, to push your limits, to be truly part of the mountain environment.
Like a compass needle to North, the mountain draws you, captivates and fulfills you.
