Winter Scramble - Dixie (Peak 4,606)

With stormy weather at Snoqualmie Pass and with the road to Mailbox closed by a jack-knifed semi, Mt Si and Dixie became our last-minute substitute destination.

  • Road suitable for all vehicles

A few inches of new snow from the Little Si trailhead nearly all the way to the benches just below the haystack on Si. Deep deposited windblown snow in the basin at the benches just below the haystack. A few early risers had preceded us up and so we were following tracks to Si. But nobody had traversed over to Dixie, so we started breaking trail. Immediately the depth increased and we donned our snowshoes. Beautiful, deep, fluffy powder that just got deeper and deeper as the day progressed. We shared a tray of homemade brownies on the summit and started down, reaching the cars just before the sun set and heavy rains commenced.
