The Cascade Mountains make fantastic hiking all year around. During July and August, you have to climb to find snow, but the rest of the year, the snow finds you. One of my favorite memories is a snow-camping trip I took with my son about 10 years ago. We went in March, I believe, when the base was about 40 feet, and visibility often dropped to less than 100 yards. It was so cold, we found ourselves sleeping for 15 hours per day. Now I know what the bears feel like!

Snow camping is great, but bring a topographical map. There are trails, but unless you have a big shovel, you'll never find them. Oh, and bring some food for the camp robbers. They'll eat right out of your hand.
