About US

Bluewood is easily one of Washington's best-kept secrets!

Perched high atop the Blue Mountains, just 54 miles northeast of Walla Walla in southeast Washington, our ski area occupies the second-highest base elevation in the state. With a base elevation of (4,450 feet), Bluewood has a reputation of possibly having the best snow in the state as well as memorable tree skiing. For those that are unfamiliar with this zone; the Blue Mountains rise out of a high-desert region, which provides clear skies and cold, smoke powder which brings an average annual snowfall of over 300 inches. 

The mountain offers nearly 400 skiable acres of lift-served terrain for every ability level and interest. With 24 trails, three terrain parks, amazing tree skiing areas, snow-cat accessible terrain, we have something for everyone at Bluewood. If you are searching for no lift lines, world-class grooming, no hustle & bustle, and arguably some of the most dry "smoke" powder in the entire region, head to Bluewood. The GOOD TIMES await, so don't delay. Come check us out today.

We are an affordable, family-friendly ski area that really is... closer than you think!
