49 Degrees North Reviews & Tips (19)

I've now been snowboarding for a month. I started at Mt Spokane, did that for a few weeks with lessons, then went to Silver, and then went to 49 north. On my trip to 49 north my intentions were to progress and start doing more blue squares from the greens I've been on. After the fact I am very thankful I chose 49 north for this progression, their ungroomed blues were very challenging and plentiful, without huge crowds or people all around me to distract me from learning. Frequently I would be the only one progressing down the blue hills so I had a lot of terrain with tons of fresh fluffy powder all to myself and I had a blast. I definitely would recommend this hill for someone looking to progress passed beginer, their greens were great and blues were phenominal. Cant really speak to blacks. On a less positive note. 1. Not all hills are well labeled and even with a map I struggled to find some of the runs I was looking for. took me 3 passes to find a run called Classifier, and I accidentally went down a black diamond due to poor labeling. I dont regret going down the black as this actually made blues much easier, but the missing signs on a few hills is very frustraiting. 2. I read someones post about how this place is much easier/safer to drive to than mt spokane. I would very much disagree with that. This place is farther from spokane and felt like a slightly more sketchy drive from my perspective, but driving conditions wouldn't keep me from either mountain. 3. This is both a pro and a con. Most everyone at the hill was really nice, with the exception of one run in I had with a guy running one of the lifts he seemed to be in a bit of a mood, however he was trying to just keep things going smoothly and throughout the day there seemed to be much less times when the lifts would shut down throughout the day than I am used to experiencing at other mountains. Overall, great experience. I wish the cost was more competitive with Mt Spokane, and/or the hours of operation were more competitive as well. Even with the better experience had its hard for me to justify paying about 70% more to go here for a day that is 5-6 hours shorter than Mt Spokane's weekend hours and 45 minutes further to commute. I will be back, I unfortunately am not likely to go to this mountain as much as others due to reasons listed in this conclusion.

Great deal on the lift tickets! Uncrowded with lots of powder. Had a great time. Defiantly would recommend this hill!

The trip was a washed, literally. It was raining when we got to the parking lot! 49 degrees staff gave as a voucher to be use for another day!

I am from NH so frozen granular surfaces are what we are used to in the east. 49Degrees North is a comfortable, "down home" ski area with tremendous terrain which dwarf the largest NE resorts. I have skied there over the past 5 seasons at times when there was 20" of new making every run a paradise. I would not go to the inland Northwest to ski and NOT include 49Degrees North in my itinerary.

Went two days ago and it was extremely icy with hard snow. Otherwise a beautiful mountain with some nice runs. The place was almost empty perhaps this has something to do with the less than ideal snow conditions. Most of the time I was completely alone on many of the runs. The staff were super friendly and the free mountain hosts were charming and helpful. I will return again.

Skied Jan 7th. The morning was great with 6 inches of fresh powder and more through the day. The afternoon had freezing fog which cut the day short. Great tree skiing and very soft turns. Highly recommend skiing 49 North!

The snow is great, runs are groomed and after 5 feet of new snow before Christmas, there were groomed and powder runs for all to love. I do not mind the older lifts as only when I go on ski trips do I get the high speed lifts with the bars for feet, etc., but a family resort such as 49, cannot afford those lifts and still operate for the price they offer. If they had all that, lots of people and families in NE WA could not afford it. They have excellent grooming equipment and it shows. Love this hill.

Great tree skiing, went on Dec. 26th and there was still knee deep powder from the big dump on the 24th. The new lift is online and gives you access to some nice intermediate and a few advanced runs. The main lift to to the summit is old school for sure but extended breakdowns are rare.

When taking a break, you break from the lifts, not the slopes. They are long, slow and offer no sense of security with no fall prevention bar or foot rest. To get onto the lift you really have to be on your toes...they are old two seaters and come in fast! At one point I biffed it because the tail of my ski was on top of the tip of my BF's ski and WHAM! we were both hit and went down hard before we established control of the skis. It hurt and was quite embarrassing!! LOL! Food in the lodge was marginal at best. They did not have much of the necessary ingrediants to put together simple meals because "the shipment had not come in yet". My BF had a "super taco" that consisted of a hamberger patti torn in two halves, sprinkled with taco seasoning and put into a soft shell with cheese and lettuce and served with a few corn chips. Hardly worth $10.00!!! When the lift broke down for two hours, and the reason being the cable coming off the reeve/pulley system (yikes!!) I said, "that's it, I am not going to be stuck up there for two hours if it happens again!!" and we split back to Spokane.

Cat O'Sullivan Intermediate Skier
Not a good time. The main lift had the cable come off the shivers and was out of commission most of two hours. There was no alternative means to access the other lift that takes people to the summit, so much of the day was wasted. This place should modernize first, expand later. The antquated, slow two person chair from the base to the summit obviously needs to be replaced with a high speed triple or better. The new proposed chair won't add an exceptional amount of acreage, and will also be slow speed. The mountain would be fun to ski if the lifts were more modern. I won't return until they are.

They need to do a much better job of grooming more runs! Having 5-6 inches of crud on top is not good maintenance

Really a great place. The tree sking is one of the best. Looking forward to the new lifts and the new area they look like they are planning. But don't tell anyone about this place

49 degres north is one of the best tree skiing areas I have been to. Had 24" of new snow just before I arrived. Nice facilities and a variety of terrain. This was my second trip to the area.

Please get boot rest for the chairs, Long lift rides were hard on the knees. The runs were nice and long, but rides up killed you.

49 Degrees North gets some of the driest snow in Washington. Great laid back, no frills and family friendly ski area with terrain for every level of skiier or boarder. Liftopia's deal was exceptional! Thank you. I would definitely ride or ski this mountain again.

This was really easy with Liftopia and the folks at 49 North are friendly and helpful. The trees were skiing really nice and had a great time. Thank you!

I found Liftopia to be fabulous! We were able to use are "vouchers" with our picture ID without difficulty. We had a wonderful ski day with our grandkids. Keep up the good work. In fact I purchased another voucher and will ski at 49 this coming Friday.
