Cross Country Ski Group

Called “Washington’s primo alpine resort” by Sunset Magazine there is a reason guests at Sun Mountain Lodge return not just year after year but season after season. Simply put — it is because nobody does winter like we do! And there is no better way to enjoy the Methow Valley’s secret season than by indulging yourself in the largest network of groomed cross-country ski trails in North America!


Whether your idea of fun is based more on skiing fresh corduroy, great accommodations, authentic western hospitality, unforgettable cuisine or snowshoeing into 2.1 million acres of unpeopled wilderness you could not choose a better destination than Sun Mountain Lodge.


From its stunning hilltop location overlooking what National Geographic Traveler has described as “one of America’s grandest and most spectacular destinations” you’ll discover winter the way skiers like it. And then, after you have exhausted yourself on the 200 kms. of groomed ski trails surrounding the Lodge indulge yourself and your friends with a visit to our full service spa, a sleigh ride along View Ridge, a wine tasting in our award-winning cellar, a stroll down the boardwalks of the old west town of Winthrop, or warm yourself in front of a roaring fire and do absolutely nothing other than enjoy the display of stars outside.


Praised by media outlets as diverse as “Outside”, the “Wall Street Journal” and the Good Morning America – Weekend Edition, the Lodge offers AAA Four Diamond dining options, friendly down home service, unmatched accommodations and jaw-dropping mountain top vistas in every direction you look. Plus you can also choose from a host of optional on-site activities to include nature and local history presentations, sleigh rides, snowshoe trails, backcountry skiing galore and a full-service activities shop to include ski rentals, trail passes and an excellent range of outdoor clothing and equipment.
