Default Columbia Plateau for you Washingtonians

Waterville Area- Some great snow, and great views!

Took my wife out for our 1st trip in the Imp (and 1st trip in a cat). The "official" reason for the Imp is future cabin access (wink wink). We're in the process of purchasing a 20 acre parcel and building a cabin. She had seen the property in October, but not in the snow...


The area is all around 3000 ft. Don't know if any of you have cruised around up there (we did see a set of cat tracks), but the snowmobile's sure hit it. All rolling wheat fields, with lots of varied terrain. I'm sure it's all privately owned, but you would never know by the snowmobile tracks. Would be an awesome place to have some sort of a roundup at some nice farmers place. Lots of unplowed county roads also, which I believe are fair game.


Waterville is a cute little town, and is only 1/2 hr from Wenatchee, where they have everything. Once I have it all built, I want to line up about 30 of you for the view pic!!!


...and yes, she is now speaking to me after bringing it home.

Count me in. Lots of history up there. Hwy 2 was the main road in WA until I-90. Farmers are all in Vegas with 1/2" of water sitting on their winter wheat, big crops this year!! Pretty big grade coming up from Orondo, any slick spots?

We went over the same weekend as McCall. Bare and dry all the way. Weather came in that night. That probably was the same weekend as your trip to pick up?

Also ran up Icicle Creek in Leavenworth....Think we got next year's xmas card pic. That'll save me 4 hrs next Thanksgiving weekend!

Yes, you can see it from the property. Pretty stoked that I'll be able to take the Imp over to go skiing.
