Up We Go for a Bluebird Day on Mount Ambilis

The SkiZer is back on the road for six days of ski adventuring.

First up: Mount Ambilis at the Cabin Creek Nordic trails just east of Snoqualmie Pass.

It was a cold day — just 6 degrees Fahrenheit at the start. Working hard made things better, and the SkiZer was quickly shedding clothing.

The climb has more than 2,000 vertical thrown in for fun. It’s slog up, then a cold coast down. Good views of Mount Rainier happen near the top.

The trail was in decent shape, except for the hikers who left post-holes on the groomed surface. Seriously? Ever heard of snowshoes? Maybe try them next time.

  • Distance skied: 15K
