49 Degrees North in Washington State and Escape2ski connect you to skiing, snowboarding, snow reports, trail maps, lift tickets, lodging and webcams. 49 Degrees North is a hidden gem located in the northeast of Washington State. Located not far from the Washington/Idaho border, it is just a short 10 mile drive from the town of Chewelah through the lovely country-side to the ski area.

49 Degrees North Mountain opened as a winter recreation area in 1935 and has expanded substantially since then. 2006 saw the development of the Sunrise Basin Area, which opened 20 new runs all serviced by a Quad Chair. Now with 82 marked runs this mountain resort truly offers adventure for everyone.

49 Degrees North offers a variety of terrain providing a pure mountain adventure that is suitable for all ability levels and is an excellent choice for individual or family getaways. The mountain has wide-open groomed runs, moguls and hundreds of acres of legendary tree skiing.

Arriving at 49 Degrees North on a Monday morning in February I was greeted to 10 inches (25 cm) of fresh untracked snow. What excited me the most about the mountain was the opportunity of endless powder. Skiing the Sunrise Basin was amazing as the snow was so light and effortless. With endless energy boosted by the amazing snow, I made my way through to other areas of the mountain; again powder was waiting for me to carve a few tracks into.

The day provided un-crowded slopes and rewarded me with a rare opportunity – the only tracks on the slopes were the one’s I left the run before.

At Escape2ski you’ll find out – What to know…before the snow.
