Editorial Review

Distance from Washington: 186 miles (about four hours)
Average snow: 190 inches
Average season length: 115 days
Price: High-season weekend lift ticket is $57 (8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
Best for: Night and backcountry skiing. Timberline has more than 10 miles of backcountry trails and seven lighted trails, one of which has been widened and given new lighting. The glade skiing trails have also been expanded for skiers in search of the best snow, which is often hidden under trees.
