Winter recreation

Winter brings loads of snow—and recreation opportunities—to the Kettle Range. The Washington Trails Association has rated Sherman Pass one of the state’s premier snowshoeing destinations. Winter weekends, the Sno-Park at the pass is usually packed, with snowshoers exploring the Kettle Crest Trail and backcountry skiers plying the famed “Hourglass” run on the north side of Sherman Peak. Meanwhile, cross-country skiers enjoy a network of trails at the north end of Profanity roadless area near Boulder Pass.
