One of Washington's most popular destinations in the summer, the trail to Snow Lake is a tempting destination in winter, too. But the steep terrain in the area puts visitors in a high-avalanche risk when snow is present. Have proper gear and an understanding of how to read the snowpack before venturing out on this trail.
