...Winter Hikes is everything you would want in a guidebook. -- Seattle Post-Intelligencer,December 1998
This book should be a double blessing to local intermediate backcountry skiers, snowboarders, and snowshoers. It's full of the requisite guidebook information-directions to trailheads, total vertical feet, topographic maps...and the like. But more important, it's written in a way that passes Blair's indefatigable enthusiasm for the outdoors to the reader. -- The Seattle Times, December 1998

I've used this book to find places that keep me from developing cabin fever in the winter. People who do a lot of hiking will know most of these spots, but there were a few I hadn't heard about. Good directions to the parking.
The summary information provided with each hike includes the distances, estimates trip time, trail type and other useful information such as the potential avalanche danger on the trail. It also includes the starting elevation and elevation gain of the trail so you can judge the potential for encountering snow.
The rating system takes some getting used to. Since many of the trails are in the lower elevations, don't expect jaw dropping views at every turn. Even highly rated trails will spend a lot of time in the woods.
Although I have said this guide is useful year-round, I think it is best for 3 season hiking. During the summer you should use other guides that provide better coverage of the high elevation trails.
