What can I see and do at the Cascade Mountains? 

Snow Tubing: Several of the ski hills around the Leavenworth area, including the Leavenworth Ski Hill, have a really fun activity called snow tubing. It’s similar to sledding, but in a tube and a lot faster. Then, when you get to the bottom, you get to ride a surface lift back to the top to start all over! 

Hiking: Whether summer or winter, the Cascade Mountains have miles and miles of hiking trails for you to explore. These range in difficulty level and can either be fun scenic trails or serious trails like the Pacific Crest Trail. 

Skiing and Snowboarding: Whether you are at Mission Ridge, Ski Hill, Stevens Pass or one of the other many ski and snowboarding areas in the Cascade Range, you are sure to have a great time. Each resort is different, offering terrain parks, backcountry skiing, or bunny hills for beginners. 

National Parks: The Cascade Mountain range closest to Leavenworth is part of the South Cascade Range. This includes fabulous sites such as Mt. Adams, Mt. Rainier, and Mt. Saint Helens. Even if all you get to do is catch a glimpse of these beauties, you will not be disappointed.
