Save or splurge this winter

In our household, we always care about the weather more during the winter. Each morning, my son will check various weather apps for news of a chance cold blast that’ll transform our Northwest drizzle into snow. 

But as any Northwesterner will tell you, it’s rare that fluffy flakes fall in our Puget Sound–area backyards. So why leave all that winter joy up to chance? 

Whatever your budget, there’s a family snow thrill waiting for you (often within easy driving distance). Read on for ideas. 

Note: The opening and closing dates for all of these activities are dependent on one thing — sufficient snow! Always call ahead for latest conditions.
