With Stevens Pass to the west, Mission Ridge to the east and 26 km of groomed Nordic trails at our doorstep, Sleeping Lady is a skier’s paradise.

Downhill Skiing
Sleeping Lady is near three exceptional downhill ski areas. Stevens Pass, 37 miles west features ten chair lifts, covering 1,125 acres of skiable terrain, including 37 major runs is known for its terrain and snowfall, receiving over 450” annually. Mission Ridge, 41 miles east near Wenatchee features four chair lifts, covering 2,000 skiable acres and is recognized for its combination of sunshine, dry snow and wide open spaces. Another jewel, just across the valley is Ski Hill, a small town hill featuring two rope tows operated by Leavenworth Winter Sports Club. View our ski packages.

Nordic Skiing
Whether you enjoy the smooth glide of classic skiing or the speed and grace of the skate lane, we’ve got the trail for you.

The Leavenworth Nordic Trail System includes 26 km of tracks and skating lanes that offer a wide variety of skiing terrain in four areas around Leavenworth. The Icicle River Trail, adjacent to Sleeping Lady makes up 8 km of the 26 km system and another 5 km at Ski Hill are lighted for night skiing.

Stevens Pass Nordic Center, 27 miles east on U.S. Hwy 2 offers an additional 28 km of tracks and skating lanes. These trails require a Stevens Pass trail pass which can be purchased at the Nordic Center.

Backcountry Skiing
Icicle Creek Road offers a surprising variety of quality alpine ski (AT) tours. Many of these tours start at just over 2000 feet, and as a result these ski tours are a bit more weather dependent than tours near Stevens Pass. Endless opportunities exist for hearty souls wishing to get up on Icicle Ridge touring in the Icicle Creek area. Leavenworth based Northwest Mountain School offers instruction and guided ski tours.

Tubing
Grab a tube, hook it to the tow, ride it to the top and enjoy the exhilaration of sliding down the hill…repeat again and again. Leavenworth Winter Sports Club operates a Tubing Hill at their Ski Hill venue.

Sleigh Rides
Over the river and through the woods…Enjoy the sound of sleigh bells mixed with laughter and song as you glide through the scenic mountain valley at Icicle Outfitters & Guides. View our Sleigh Ride Package.
