Best Ski Vacations from Seattle
As the home to Eddie Bauer, REI and dozens of other outdoor gear companies, Seattle is closely intertwined with the history of American Alpinism. In fact, the first American expedition to Mt. Everest was overloaded with Washingtonians. Seattle seems surrounded by peaks -- with the Cascade Mountains here and the Olympic Mountains there, not to mention the Coast Range up above. If you had Mt. Rainier hovering majestically over your city every day, you'd be inspired to get outside and accomplish alpine feats, too.
