Full review

I've boarded at Stevens now for about 5 years and I keep going back every year. What I love about it the most is its varied terrain from in such a small location. The tree lines are some of the best especially on blizzard days and when snow piles up, Big Chief Bowl on the front side is a must. For the more advanced people, hiking above 7th heaven and exploring into the back country is something amazing. What makes Stevens not as good as some of the other mountains is its size. It's much smaller than Crystal and Snoqualmie and is more of a locals place similar to Baker. But what it does offer is night skiing which surprisingly a lot of the places in Washington don't have. Just recently Stevens got approval to start building a mountain bike park after the 10-11 season which will be amazing since it's the first in the state and the closest one is at Whistler Blackcomb. And for all the people who call it their home mountain, we can not wait for Steven's Master Development Plan to be approved which will add many more lifts to some of the best terrain including what is now a portion of the back country, more tree runs and areas you had to hike a long time to get to. Overall Stevens is a mountain that offers much to people of all ages and skill levels and has big ideas for the near future.
