Where is the best place to to downhill skiing within a couple hours driving of Spokane, Washington?

with 2 comments

We are going to be at a conference in Spokane in March and had hoped to do some skiing. Is there a good resort within a couple hours driving?

I have skied every mountain within two hours of Spokane. In my opinion, Silver Mountain is the best. Silver Mountain is actually two mountains, it is reasonably priced, and has a variety of terrain.

The coolest part about Silver Mountain is that you get to the top of the mountain via the Nation’s (used to be the World’s) Longest Gondola. This means that you pull off the Interstate, and you are there. No driving up steep, icy, snowy mountain roads. Instead you get an awesome 30-minute aerial view of the Silver Valley, included with the price of a lift ticket.

  1. I would go to Idaho. It’s not too far.
