Join us for a scenic flight above the North Cascades.
Snowking Aviation is an FAA authorized air tour operator based in Concrete, Washington. We are located near the boundary of North Cascades National Park on Scenic Highway 20, just 95 miles north of Seattle.
Mountains surround our premier location.
Often called “America’s Alps,” the mountain scenery of the North Cascades is world class. Mt. Formidable, Bonanza Peak, and Snowking Mountain are just a few highlights, along with dozens of glaciers, alpine lakes, and plunging waterfalls. Spectacular Mt. Baker, Mt. Shuksan, and the Glacier Peak Wilderness are just over the hill. With wilderness so close, our scenic flights are able to take visitors deep into the mountains. Experience the drama of vertical terrain, and enjoy an up-close look at mountain scenery like you’ve never seen before.

Planning a backcountry adventure?
As climbers, we recognize the value of scoping alpine objectives and approach routes from the air before making a larger commitment. Our flights provide quick access to the backcountry for direct, accurate information that is not possible to obtain any other way. We’ll fly with you and your partners to evaluate and document your obsession.
AIRPLANE FERRY SERVICE
Experience has taught us how to prepare, when to go, hazards to avoid, and how to comply with U.S. Customs, Canadian Customs, Transport Canada, and FAA regulations. We know how to manage international border crossings, route options, limited weather information, and long, remote cross-country legs with no communication.
We’re experienced professionals–let us manage the risks.
