Where to go sledding and tubing near Seattle

Editor's note: It's especially important this winter, with COVID considerations in addition to variable snow conditions, that you double-check operating status of the place you want to go. Also note that cafés mentioned may not be open at the moment, and if they are, it's for takeout service only. Visitor centers, lodges and rental shops are closed. There's a new snow play spot open (woohoo) at Easton Reload along I-90, but note there's not a sledding hill here.

Sledding is the definition of a screaming-good time. We've tracked down a handful of awesome sledding hills where you can go to enjoy the thrill of slipping and sliding your way down a snow-packed hill (weather permitting, of course). Speaking of which, we recommend always checking conditions and open/closed status before you go.

Many of these spots include a nearby indoor area for resting and warming up, but in any case, be sure to dress warmly and bring a change of clothes for little ones. Adhesive hand and foot warmers (available at many stores) can be a great option for keeping little fingers and toes toasty. We also recommend bringing along plenty of snacks and — for bonus points! — a thermos of hot cocoa.
