Our roads are safer than the highway. The County plows as needed all winter. The school buses use our road and go up and over Beaver Hill to Leavenworth. You normally will not need chains if you have good tires. Remember the State “requires” you carry chains when traveling the passes, but its rare to have to put them on. We plow our own interior roads. 10 mph please.
Four beautiful, distinct seasons. Each with its own fun “Things to Do”
Winter, or the first snow, usually starts just after Thanksgiving. We normally go through winter with 1 to 3 feet on the ground until just after Valentines Day. ( We plow our own roads.) Remember Mother Nature is not always normal! Day temps. average 25-40 degrees, nights 15-25 degrees. Check your weather and pass reports.
Spring, gets underway about mid-March to mid June. Lots of wildflowers, and birds returning April/May. Temperatures about 60 plus during the day, with frosts at night.
