Psst. Want to know an honest-to-goodness Pacific Northwest secret? Keep it quiet because they might kick me out of the state if I tell you. The truth is… you can snowshoe all year long out here. Yeah. Even in Summer.
As long as you’re willing to chase the snow there’s snow to be had. It can be a lifesaver when the temperatures here skyrocket into the 80s. (Once, we even had a high temperature of 90 degrees! And you thought it rained all the time in the Northwest.)
By far the easiest snow to access, not to mention the most scenic, is in Mount Rainier National Park. There are two visitor centers located high on the mountain that have snow or make access to snow much simpler.
