Snow Shoeing in Windy Pass Trail, Wenatchee, Washington USA

8mi/13km
Best snow shoeing season:
December to February
Wenatchee is the largest city of Chelan County, located in North Central Washington and lies on the west side of the Columbia River. The city is also known as the Apple Capital of the world, due to the valley's apple cultivations.

Windy Pass Trail is located on the Central Cascade Mountain, next to Mount Catherine. The trail is 8 mi/13 km long (out and back), about eight hours hike with an elevation gain of 2300 ft/701 m. The trail is open for snowshoeing from December through late February and it is not suitable for beginners. By December, the snow is more than enough while the valley’s and mountain’s view is unbelievable.

Windy Pass Trail is a great path to enjoy snowshoeing and practice your skills. You will walk through dark forests, alpine scenery, and untouched powder snow if you visit the trail early enough. The path is safe from snowdrifts but always check the weather forecast before you choose this trail and don’t forget to take with you a map and a compass.
