Leavenworth  has its own tiny ski area, Leavenworth Ski Hill (509/548-5115), with two rope tows providing uphill transportation for the handful of runs. There’s also a snowboard half-pipe. The ski season here is generally shorter than at the bigger areas because of the lower elevation.
Two larger ski areas are close by: Stevens Pass , 35 miles to the west on Highway 2, and Mission Ridge, 35 miles in the other direction near Wenatchee . Mission Ridge is a favorite of locals because of the dry snow and less-crowded slopes.
