Alpental is a great place for weekday powder. It's close to Seattle, and it has some killer terrain for experts, especially in the backcountry. However, on a weekend, the one expert chair is almost guaranteed to be crowded, and good luck trying to find powder! The ski resort is very small, so the crowd is very condensed.
