FUN Society founder Maia Green lives up to her last name with her concern for the environment, and she started FUN Society to teach kids to care for the earth as well. The nonprofit—FUN stands for "Friends Uniting for Nature"—carries out her goals through summer camps and supporting kids' ideas to bolster the environment. They even take their work overseas, starting a youth program in South Africa in 2012 and sending a group to a UN climate-change conference in 2011.

Methow Valley Sport Trails Association's 120 miles of manicured snow pathways unfurl through a scenic landscape of valleys, forests, and mountains. Adventurers spend three consecutive days carving swathes through the powdered paths, with gently rolling areas for beginners, lengthy climbs for veterans, and loop-the-loops for skiers with rockets strapped to their backs. Coast through the 30-kilometer Methow Community Trail, which traverses the Foster-Twalks Suspension Bridge and bows low to the Methow River. On the machine-groomed tracks of the Mazama Trails, newcomers glide through flat farmlands, and the Sun Mountain Trails have an even mix of easy, intermediate, and difficult runs that all end at the doorstep of a warm hut.
