Just an hour east of Seattle, Washington, Snoqualmie Pass provides easy access to rugged glaciated mountains with deep snow and terrain for anyone with strong intermediate to expert skiing skills. Here are the couloirs, the pristine open slopes, and the tree skiing that can only be found outside ski area boundaries.Swiss mountain guide, ski mountaineer, and author Martin Volken supplies information on twenty-eight single-day and multiday excursions, plus "The Forbidden Tour," a bonus tour located in the North Cascades. Rip planning, avalanches, and the duration of ascents and descents are all covered. You'll discover: easy-to-use statistics for tour length, duration, vertical relief, and the level of required fitness; the best time of the year to ski different routes; the essential equipment needed for backcountry skiing, alpine touring, telemarking, and ski mountaineering; a trip-rating system to aid in planning; maps, elevation profiles, and photos.(6 x 9, 168 pages, b&w photos, maps, charts)

Martin does a great job of documenting ski explorations around Snoqualmie Pass. There are lots of options in this area and, as usual, most of us have just scratched the surface. There is also some good information about longer overnight tours at the end of the book.
