Big Jim Mountain, WA

This tour was recommended by one of our guide books as a good "later season" ski spot, and we had seen a few trip reports from over the years of late season tours up to Big Jim Mountain, so it seemed like a cool new spot to try for a lovely sunny weekend...

We ended up hiking about 3 miles with 2000 ft of elevation gain, skis strapped to our packs, before we hit skiable snow. By the time we got up there we were so tired, and it was so late we only had a tiny bit of skiing before we made the long trek back down. Seems like this would be an awesome hike or backpack in the summer (views of the valley were gorgeous), but not sure I'd recommend this as a spot to ski. Seriously good workout though :)
