Hurricane Ridge Ski and Snowboard Area is located in the Olympic National Park west of Seattle on the Olympic Peninsula. From the Seattle area, head to the Hood Canal Bridge which will connect you to the Olympic Peninsula via Highway 101 and into Port Angeles. Turning south onto Race Street watch for the Park sign and make a slight right onto the Hurricane Ridge Parkway. The National Park charges an entrance fee of $30 per car or a yearly pass for $55. Weather dependent, the road is generally open to uphill traffic from 9am to 4pm. There is no overnight accommodations or parking and all vehicles must be off the mountain by 5pm.


Due to COVID19, there is no food service or rentals available at the Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center. Please plan accordingly. Call 360-565-3130 for specific information from Olympic National Park on snowshoeing at the Ridge.



Olympic National Park plows the parking lot for only 175 vehicles. Once the lot is at capacity the road is metered from the Entrance Station (one car down one car up) which can result in a one to three-hour wait. To ensure yourself a space, plan to be at the Entrance Station gate by 8 am. Call the Road Report at 360-565-3131 and follow ONP Twitter @HRWinterAccess prior to travel.
