Washington Alpine Club Conservation and Recreation!

Grass Roots, & Making a Difference!

Serving Snoqualmie Pass and the I 90 Corridor, the Washington Alpine Club is working collaboratively to collectively communicate and address the wide variety of conservation and recreation issues affecting the I90 corridor year round.


 

 

Background and Purpose

The Washington Alpine Club is working to collectively address the wide variety of issues affecting the I90 corridor year round. This includes I90 Exit 42 on the west side of the Cascade Divide to Lake Easton and the Salmon la Sac on the east side.

Our grass roots focus is to identify and communicate local issues and creatively create solutions. Through specific action items, we are working closely with WA State Parks, WSDOT, the Wenatchee Forest Service, the Mount Baker Snoqualmie National Forest, Summit Ski Are, and others.




 


 

Crystal Springs has parking and other issues that affect historic users and non motorized users. We hope to help WA State Parks and the Wenatchee National Forest craft a permanent solution.
