Excellent guide book written by living legends of cascade ski mountaineering. Ranks all of the routes by both technical difficulty and fitness difficulty, so you can easily find tours to suit your appetite.

This is a fantastic reference for skiing in Washington state. Lots of great info on approaches, difficulty, and tips and tricks. I appreciate the variety of routes too—some extreme and a lot of moderate and easy tours. Some classics in this one for sure!

Hard to find another book for Washington, so until something else comes out to compare to, worth 5 stars. Includes key areas in all parts of the Cascades, with many practical and dream routes. As with all Mountaineers books, graphics could be modernized, but at least its a standard format.
