40 mins from my home in Enumclaw, WA is the Crystal Mountain Ski Resort. My favorite place for a cozy drink is the Snorting Elk Cellar where you can eat yummy deli foods and have a beer or other spirit of your choice, It is fun to mingle with the people just back from sking and hear about the days "powder." The people are all friendly and the atmosphere out of a movie, My favorite visit was for Valetine's Day, There was snow on the ground and it was warm inside and very ROMANTIC. The drive is fantastic too as you hae giant pine trees and old growth the whole way to the pub. This is an AFAR kind of place.
