Astounding Snow, Amazing Views

In the heart of Olympic National Park is Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area. At almost a mile high, Hurricane Ridge offers spectacular winter recreation and activities on the North Olympic Peninsula, and features winter vistas unmatched anywhere in the Pacific Northwest.

This small, family-oriented ski area, offers guests quality winter sports experience, without the high cost and congestion of most ski areas. Hurricane Ridge boasts some superb groomed areas - and for the accomplished skier or snowboarder, the steeps, bowls and glades are well worth the hike to get there. With a summit elevation of 5,240 feet, the average annual snowfall is 400-plus inches.

NOTE: The ski operation at Hurricane Ridge is managed by the Hurricane Ridge Winter Sports Club (HRWSC)
