4 Washington Road Trips You Can Actually Take In The Winter

Although Washington’s winters are far from the worst in the nation, they aren’t entirely mild or predictable, either. The North Cascades Highway, Chinook Pass, and plenty of other roads close down for the season, and Snoqualmie Pass can single-handedly ruin your holiday plans with its volatile weather.

But that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stay home until spring. Depending on what part of the state you live in, you can still hit the road safely this season. Here are a few weekend trips you can take anytime. Feel free to adjust your starting points as you see fit.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

Washington is gorgeous in any season, but there’s something special about seeing its landscapes dusted with snow.
