Snowrider's Guide 

Four ways to enjoy winter, as told by local athletes from four different disciplines

This winter season the Northwest is in line for an above-average snowfall, at least according to's "Expert Long-Range Forecaster" Paul Pastelok. That's good news—if you believe in such things. As for us, well, we don't trust a forecast that's more than a couple days down the road, but we will take September's record-breaking snows as a good omen.

In that spirit, this year's Snowrider's Guide, highlights four different disciplines—Nordic, backcountry, alpine and snowboarding. Each profile is an encouraging and inspiring athlete, someone whose wisdom and experience will hopefully stoke your own snowrider ambitions. Bundle up and get out there; no matter how much snow we get it's going to be a good winter.

(By the way, for accurate snow searches, try, which offers pinpoint, hyper-local powder predictions. Also,, when the federal government returns to work, is a safe bet).
