Snowshoers who wish to hike the direct route to the summit of Mount Spokane can use this winter-only route. This is a short yet difficult hike since it's a steep straight-up climb to the top!

The route runs directly from Bald Knob campground (closed in winter) to the radio towers. Hikers need to remember to stay to the left of the ski area boundary on the hike to the top.

Once on the summit, snowshoers are welcome to hike to the access point near the top of chair one, crossing at the gate, in order to visit the 1934 Vista House. The ski area operates a winter-only weekend concession stand inside, so get a cup of hot cocoa & relax by the fireplace before retracing one's steps or opting for more exploring on the park's extensive trail system.
