Amabilis skiing - Hiking, Climbing and Travel
Between I-90 and Kachess Lake, connected to no other ridgelines, Amabilis Mountain stands tall. Amabilis gets many visitors as it is a Washington prominence peak but the main attraction as a destination is the winter skiing. Every cross country skier has been up at least once. In summer, there are much better places to find yourself but if you've got some extra time, you can drive to the summit for some exceptional views of the area.
