7. Echo Valley Ski and Tubing Area

This Chelan-area ski and tubing hill would be a very ambitious day trip (3–4 hour drive from Seattle), but if you have the time, take a few days and book a place to stay. With rope tows and a four-lane tubing hill, this volunteer-run nonprofit resort is a great option for families that want to get away. 

Fee: $15 for a full-day pass ($10 for a half-day pass) for tubing, with tubes provided. Free for kids ages 5 and younger and fifth graders. Fifth graders ski and tube for free here.

Status: Check Echo Valley's Facebook page for daily status.

Hours: Open daily, check the website for holiday hours. 

Warm up: The base area has a day lodge with a roaring fireplace and an eatery.
