Bluewood, Dayton

#10 of 18 in Winter Sports in Washington State
Ski Bluewood, formerly known as "Bluewood Ski Area," is an alpine ski area in the northwestern United States, in southeastern Washington. Located in Columbia County, at the northern end of the Blue Mountains in the Umatilla National Forest, the elevation at the base area is above sea level, with a summit of 5670ft for a vertical drop of. The northward-facing slopes are about four miles (7 km) north of the Oregon border and 50mi west of Idaho, part of the headwaters of the Touchet River, the main tributary of the Walla Walla River.
The only surface access to the base area of the mountain is through Dayton, to the northwest and nearly 3000ft below on North Touchet Road. Though the summit is only about twenty miles (30 km) due east of Walla Walla as the crow flies, Ski Bluewood is about an hour's drive as Dayton is 30mi northeast on U.S. Route 12. In addition to Walla Walla, Bluewood is the closest alpine ski area (in mileage) to the Tri-Cities to the west, and the closest chairlift-served area to Lewiston-Clarkston.

  • This was interesting has a restaunt and a place to eat don’t forget the the snow peaked mountins it good for ski and snowborders  more »
  • Very small ski resort for the casual skier. Small and intimate. Probably not for the avid skier but worked for us. Reasonable prices for lift and rentals. Will go back  more »
  • The bathrooms, although earth friendly, stink pretty bad because of the oil recycling system & give me a horrible headache. The staff is great- friendly & helpful. The new lift is pretty neat. Family friendly! Overall Great place!
  • Grilled great hamburgers. Really pretty here
